Textile Collage Houses

Kindergarteners Collage houses. Students used a variety of materials to create their house. We incorporated fashion and textiles to inspire students with their design. They enjoyed this lesson just as much a I enjoyed watching them create! 🏡🤩

Beach 🏖 Penguins 🐧

Students learned foreground, middle ground and background in this Multi-media project. They began with a guided drawing activity of their penguins. Students then collaged their beach backgrounds with colored construction paper and drew their beach details in their “sandscape”. Last students cut out and glued their penguins🐧 to the foreground.


After learning about ROYGBIV singing and dancing around the art room my tiny artist created these wonderful multimedia rainbows 🌈

Monsters Love Colors

Grade 1 Monsters ❤️ Colors:
After reading the book we went over our primary and secondary colors.
Students then became monsters 🤭and scribbled all over their paper using two primary colored markers to make a secondary color.
They saw the magic ✨when they added water and painted over their scribbled paper. Once dried we used the secondary color oil pastels and applied “Lines”.
Then we made the two colored monsters that made the secondary color or “Magic” happen.
A great layered lesson to introduce colors and lines.
Grade 1 IB PYP Multi-media lesson on Colors
Just add water and Let the magic happen!
Wow is that Orange?
So Yellow and red make Orange!!
Let’s get those Lines of Design in there!!!

Kandinsky Trees Gr. Kindergarten



Kandinsky Trees
Kindergarten Lesson

This was a fun lesson that my Kindergartners enjoyed. They started out tracing their hand on brown paper. Then cutting it out and gluing it on to the yellow construction paper.  We then went over small, medium, and large for the circles.  Getting them to differentiate the sizes was challenging however you can modify your lesson by having them either draw small, medium, and large circles on different color paper, or you can have them start out drawing the small circle cutting it out and gluing it onto a different color construction paper.  Then have them draw a “Bigger” circle around it, cutting it out and gluing it on to a different color paper.  Then draw a “Bigger” circle around that one.  They will end up with a three circle pattern that they can now glue onto their branch.  Remember be Art Smart and have fun.
