Astronauts in Space

Grade 4 learned how to draw an astronaut through a guided drawing tutorial from Art for Kids Hub YouTube channel. Students then developed skills in drawing and blending using chalk and oil pastels as they created an outer space background on construction paper. Once students finished their backgrounds we mounted their astronaut using card stock and mounting tape to give it a 3D effect. πŸš€πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸš€β˜„οΈπŸ’«

Falling For Foreshortening

My 4th graders really enjoyed this lesson. After tracing their hands and feet, they drew and colored themselves as astronauts. Then they painted the background black and used oil and chalk pastels for stars, planets, UFO’s, etc.

My student after drawing foreshortened image and coloring, he is now painting the background black, then will use chalk pastels for stars, planets, UFO’s, etc.
