The past few months my students have been making feathers for a group mural. This idea was inspired by my friend and celebrity in the art community, Cassie Stephens! Head on over to her blog and check out her magical art teacher'n treasures at Cassie Stephen's Blog!! Her original inspo was international street artist, Kelsey Montague. Her inspiring murals challenge people to ask the question "What Lifts you"
"What makes your heart Soar?"
My students are going to be writing about their passions and inspirations that "lifts" them! I want each student that comes to my art class to feel as though they are walking out with wings on their back, so they can bravely rise up to their dreams with courage and passion! I want them to feel confident in themselves and know that the sky is the limit!
One group did primary and secondary colors red, orange, yellow, green blue, and violet. The next group would paint intermediate colors, red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, and red=violet
Fourth and fifth graders used 9' by 24' paper and 3rd graders used smaller paper
then they decorated them with unique lines and designs with white prisma color pencils
Once we finished the shape, we taped each feather down to the paper with painter's tape
Then I hung that bad boy with TONS and tons and TONS of staples!!
The next morning the kids were SO excited to find their feathers turned into GIANT wings!!!
