After learning about ROYGBIV singing and dancing around the art room my tiny artist created these wonderful multimedia rainbows 🌈
My first graders painted owls:
- The owls body, including wings, head and ears
- Add skinny legs
- Add dots for the pupils
- White- owls body, including wings, head and ears
- Black- outline,skinny legs, pupils
- Black- add small feather strokes…little “u’s”
- White-Snowy background
Lastly they were given a strip of brown construction paper to make a branch and glue under the feet.
Can you say ADORABLE!…I found this on Pinterest and had to do this project with my students so I must share because the Pinterest post did not have directions just a image. Have Fun!!
My second grade did collage owls:
- Paint snow all over their construction paper and glue a brown branch to the bottom of their paper.
- They were given two circle templates for the body, to trace, cut out and glue onto paper above the branch.
- Use small pieces of torn paper to fill in the body.
- Two cupcake liners for eyes, use yellow paper for the circles inside.
- Use a small piece of black construction paper to make a beak, legs and feet.
- Lastly fold paper and trace wing template, cut out and glue them on the sides of the owl.
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.
