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 😋
Warm & Cool Zentangle Cat Silhouettes
Students began by drawing 2 cat silhouettes. We discussed how to create Zentangles using line patterns and how to create illusion designs. After students designed both cats they painted warm and cool checkered backgrounds. Lastly they mounted their cats on yellow paper and onto their checkered backgrounds. 😻🙌🏽

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 ❤️🎨😻🐶🤩
Claes Oldenburg 🍔🍟🍕🌭Pop Art ~Grade 6~ Collage

Students used a variety of materials to create their toppings, they were encouraged to think out the box and recreate their favorite foods as hamburger toppings some included ice cream 🍦, chicken 🍗, egg 🍳, pizza 🍕, sushi 🍣, and more.
Students then glued their creations on a paper plate and made a red and white paper weaving tablecloth as the final touch.
