I LOVE quilts. I wanted to do a simple quilt project with first grade, and got this idea from http://artprojectgirl.blogspot.com/ We painted patchwork quilts and added details and borders with oil pastels.
I didn’t get to take pictures of the last step, but they made a border and decorations with real patterned fabric and glued it on at the end. The real fabric made them look great, and the kids were so excited to sift through all the scraps and add them to their artwork.
This adorable student actually wore her patchwork quilt hat on her art day knowing we were finishing our quilts that day! So cute!!!
We used colored pencils to add the stitches to our quilts.
Recently I have seen these videos floating around on different blogs about circle paintings. We watched the videos and got inspired. My 3rd-5th graders had ALOT of fun with the circle paintings. I will post our final products next week.
