Welcome to Art Class with the Amazing Art Teacher

Here is one of my many animated introductory lessons. Students love my Bitmoji. My videos are great to increase student engagement, motivation and enhance learning.

SnapChat Filter Selfies

Students loved creating self portraits using snap chat filters. Move over Instagram we all know Snapchat has the best fun filters.

To make our selfies even more real we mounted them on a cell phone drawing.

This lesson is inspired by Cassie Stephens she has a tutorial on her blog as well as her YouTube channel. https://cassiestephens.blogspot.com

I allowed my students to chose their filter and animal. I love the finished product๐Ÿคณ๐Ÿพโฃ๏ธ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ“ฒ

My Grade 3โ€™s learning about the element of art โ€œValueโ€. After discussing the brush fires in Australia they did a guided drawing activity of a Koala. They developed skills in shading and blending using charcoal, oil pastels, and acrylic paints. Watercolors were used to paint the background. Leaves were drawn by observation, value was added using oil pastels then pasted as the last step. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿจโค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ
