Snowy Silhouettes

Standard
Snowy Silhouettes

Fourth grade is making these snowy nighttime scenes using value and blending with paint. Before we started in on the real deal, we practiced first with color pencils then with paint. Sharing our steps here!

I’ll share the students’ work when we are finished!

Here’s some of the student work. They were still so creative with the limited use of only silhouettes.

Owl Moon Paintings

Standard

Before the winter break started I read Owl Moon to my second graders. It was a great opportunity to integrate and discuss describing words and phrases and how we should apply that to our art as well.
So we drew out our cute little snowy owls on paper and then painted the background and the branch and the eyes. When they came back the next time, I had come across a “pinteresting” pin about adding glue to shaving cream and painting with it. So we decided to try that little experiment since we wanted our owls to look fluffy. They turned out so cute! Here are a few pics of them. 🙂

I didn’t get to do the shaving cream paint with all of the classes so some of them finished with oil pastels. I love them all!
