I'm back!! I have been so busy this year, I cannot believe its already October and I have not updated since MAY!!! We had an amazing summer, it just flew by so fast!
This is our newest family member, "Bunbun" that we got this summer. He's the cutest bunny alive!
So many things have changed and I am now teaching at a new campus. We are doing SO many fun things in the art room so I will continue to post for a few days until I catch up!! Today for my first super long post, I wanted to write about some of the fun Fall projects we have going on! Students have been learning about pumpkins and creating some beautiful Fall pumpkin patches and scarecrows! We even started some cool glow in the dark spider webs today!
Third grade made these watercolor pumpkins that turned out beautifully! They also used glow in the dark paint for the stars and moon!
That had to draw 3-4 overlapping pumpkins and we gave them value and made them look shiney!
Fourth grade made these "Pumpkin Piles"
They used chalk pastels, and glow in the dark paint for the stars
Then they used oil pastels to color the shirt, corn, crow, eyes, nose, and grass lines.
Then they painted the sky, grass, and the hat with watercolors
Kindergarten and First grade made these squirrels last week. We did a draw-along first, and then they colored the pumpkin and squirrel with oil pastels. Next they glued a white acorn on him and painted it gold. They painted the tail gold too. I made little arms that they glued on and added some fur. The kids added details that reflected themselves. I love how this student added a chef's hat because he likes to cook!!
