So I found this on Pinterest and thought they were super cute. I thought it would make a great early lesson for my kinders and discussing shapes and colors. I’ll post their finished pieces as soon as we’re done!
My Kindergarten through second grades have been busy little art-making bees! We have not only been making beautiful Fall art, but we have also been working on bookmarks for our Muffins for Mom morning, decorations for our school book fair, and prepping for our Art to Remember fundraiser! Check out some of my K-2 artwork!
Second grade’s second artist to discuss is Gustav Klimt. They love all of the busy patterns (or as they say, “patterins”???) and designs and colors… As do I. 🙂 so we drew the outline of an owl in sharpie on a 9×12 paper and added the designs with crayons. The second class, we cut our owls out and then painted them with watercolors.
They will look beautiful on my “Hoo” loves fall art board!
Finally got around to taking pictures of another bulletin board I put up in the entry way of my school. The projects were both done with First graders and I thought they looked so nice together, I put them all on one board. It’s just a select few, but I just don’t have the time or space to put up all of their work. The first project was the Fall trees and we discussed warm and cool colors and the changing leaves. I have two versions of a tree that I use for Kindergarten and First grades. The first graders’ tree is much more intricate and difficult to cut out. It tests their cutting skills and these guys all did great.
The second project was the step-by-step owls and we discussed shapes before and during the drawing of the owls. The all look similar but they all have their own little personalities. I found different versions of this on Artsonia and at Art Projects for Kids! 🙂
