Amazing Art Teacher ~Takashi Murakami 🌼🎨
I am literally obsessed with Takashi Murakami’s Art. I was blessed to have the opportunity to visit his Art exhibition in Hong Kong 🇭🇰 My students have also become slightly obsessed thanks to me. 🤫😬 Every time they see his artwork they can’t wait to come to me with pictures or to share their Murakami sightings 😍
Henri Rousseau Art Exhibition
An interactive Jungle of Animals.
The pictures do not do it justice. This by far is one of my favorite Art show themes. The students loved seeing their Art projects come to life.

They look good enough to eat 😋

Cats 🐱 & Dogs 🐶
This is one of my favorite lessons.
Students started with an eye study on how to draw realistic animal eyes. They used oil pastels for coloring. Students then began to paint on newspaper. Once dried students ripped and shredded the newspaper 📰 and glued onto their blank canvas.
Students then placed the eyes and nose over the newspaper and painted more in-depth details to create their cats and dogs. Multi step lesson with amazing results ❤️🎨😻🐶🤩
Pop Art Donuts 🍩 Wayne Thiebaud
Students learned about American artist Wayne Thiebaud and his contribution to the Pop Art movement. Students created paper mache donuts inspired by the paintings of Thiebaud. Then students did a observational drawing of their donut. As a pre- assessment Students were not given any direction on their drawing, simply to draw what they see.
Later I demonstrated how to draw a still life using appropriate perspective and proportion and guided the students through their drawing. Students developed skills in blending and shading using oil pastels. Students were amazed by their drawing and how much their artistic skills progressed. Students were then asked to reflect on the project and their progression.

Viva la Frida 🌺🌼🌸💓🙌🏽
This is one of my favorites! My Grade 4 students learned all about Frida Kahlo and her brilliant self portraits. This was a multi-media lesson beginning with a guided demonstration on how to draw Frida. Students used oil pastels and watercolors to design their portraits and background. Lastly students created tissue paper flowers for her crown.
My Grade 1 students had fun choosing funny animals to represent Frida. They used sponge paint to design a textured frame. Students created tissue paper flowers to add actual texture and black felt for Frida’s infamous unibrow.
I must say I’m obsessed with the outcome and the amazing artwork of my little artists.🎨💓
