Survival of the Fittest

Survival of the Fittest

Made it! Rules and procedures: taught. 600 fish: created. First week: done.

Glitter glue, watercolor, foam shapes, crayons, color sticks, sequins, and gems. Oh yeah, and rules and procedures. Week one was a success! 

Thank goodness for a long Labor Day weekend to recover. Next week will include some fun elements of art projects! 

Art Journal: Tree of Life


This will be our last art journal post for a bit. We are taking a break to celebrate the seasons with some larger-scale pieces. For this page, we looked at and discussed many different versions of the Tree of Life/Knowledge before creating our own versions. We started with a background and then painted the tree black. I gave them the full ROYGBIV in paint for them to use for the leaves. I also gave them some sequins and shiny things if they wanted to add some special leaves. They turned out great and these are just a few!



I love how this student used part of the picture in her book as part of her painting!
