My fifth graders started these sunburst paintings today. They were fully engaged and enjoying the freedom to experiment with color mixing. I can’t wait to see their finished products! Thanks to Small for Big for such a great idea!
Kinders are going to be learning colors and color order next week. I saw a picture on Pinterest for this idea but the link doesn’t lead to a lesson or the picture for it – at least not anymore. Shout out to the creator!
Here are a few results! I love them. 😍
Pretty excited about this project even though it’s been around for awhile. I’ve never attempted it with any grade and I’m not sure why. Probably just not enough hours in the day or classes in the week. But this year I’m giving it a shot with first grade. It’s a fun take on what can be a Halloween project (or not) and uses lines, color, and some 3D effects with the spider.
I’m posting my step by step pics to use when I’m going through it with my students. I’ll add more with the spider later. We used black crayons to draw the webs and tempera cakes to paint.
Here are a few finished webs with spiders! I love how colorful they are. The kids did a great job taking their time painting.
I found this awesome lesson for my 2nd graders over at Mrs. Knight’s Smartist Artists. We reviewed pop art and Wayne Thiebaud with this and then reviewed the color wheel and color mixing. We also watched Scratch Garden’s video The Color Song.
We had our discussion and painted the paper in the first class with the primary colors for the Popsicles.
Never Eat Soggy Waffles!
Great advice, right?! This was the wisdom one of my 4th graders shared with her class when they were trying to remember the order of the cardinal directions as we were drawing our compass roses.
The kids have done a great job designing and creating these with a compass and ruler. We have started painting them and will finish by mounting them to cut up road maps.
I found this awesome lesson at Artisan des Arts! 🙂
