Art Class Day 3

Halfway done today! 

Our two books we focused on: 
-Rainbow Fish
-Bad Case of the Stripes

The kids loved their self-portraits. 
They were astonished that they'd cover their own works of art in stripes. 

We started with white construction paper.
Then the kids drew their faces with a pencil, followed up with Sharpies to trace them.
Finally, paint with tempera paint. (I had the kids go back and add vertical stripes with pencil after the Sharpie so the stripes wouldn't show up.) 

For our Rainbow Fish, we used paper plates, glue, and tempera paint. 
We cut a triangle out for the mouth and glued it to the end for the tail. 
Students got to finger paint on this one, which was a mess,but such fun for the students.
Last, but not least, was the googly eye! 

These two art pieces plus writing pieces can be found in my Fun Friday 2 unit!

Art Class Day 2

Today was a fun one! 
We spent the day on Pigeon stories and Where the Wild Things Are! 

Check out our art work!

How we made our wild things:
-Took one piece of white long construction paper
-Drew our wild thing with pencil, traced the wild things with Sharpie markers to keep the outline 
-Use water colors to paint our wild things 

How we made our Pigeons:
-We used the template from my Fun Friday unit.
-We painted Pigeon's body parts light blue with kid's tempera paint.
-Then we cut out the pieces, glued them together.

Both of these pieces of art and the writing pieces are in my Literature Fun Friday Unit!
