Heather Galler inspired Bouquets πŸ’

My Grade 2’s absolutely loved drawing these enlarged flower 🌺 🌸 bouquets.

This lesson comes from one of my amazing art teacher friends Cassie Stephens~ you can find more of her projects on her blog cassiestephens.blogspot.com

Cats 🐱 & Dogs πŸΆ

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 πŸ“° 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 ❀️🎨😻🐢🀩

Surrealism

High School Students learned about surrealism and the work of Salvador Dali. They looked through magazines and chose two unrelated pictures and combined them to create a drawing inspired by surrealism artists.

🍰 Cake πŸŽ‚ Wayne Thiebaud 🧁 Pop Art

Grade 5

Demonstrated how to draw a slice of cake Students then designed a slice of cake drawing it with appropriate perspective and proportion.

After students’ drawings were done they began assembling and sculpting a 3D version of their cake using cardboard and paper mache techniques.

Students learned how to make and mix ingredients for paper mache sculptures.

Last students painted and decorated their cakes bringing their drawings to life! 🍰 Good enough to eat πŸ˜‹πŸŽ‚

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.

Just having fun decorating our donuts 🍩
Time to make the Donuts 🍩

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.

Landscapes

Here is an animated Video I created with my Bitmoji to help my students learn about landscapes with a cool song to help them remember where and how to place objects in the Foreground, Middle ground, and Background. I also teach them a cool dance along with learning the song 🎡 πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸŽ¨β€οΈ
