Coffee Filter Leaves

Fall is here and this is my ease back into the week after fall break project. It works across all my grade levels....K-4!

I'm almost more enthralled with the by-product art on our papers for the drying rack than the actual coffee filter leaf! Using HP photo paper is really absorbing the bright colors!

below are!

Beginning the Year with Kindergarten

Kandinsky line paintings....this year we only used black oil pastels to draw our lines. I think I like this better.

Catch-up Day

So this class was wayyyy behind on getting to paint three things, therefore we had a triple painting day. Amazingly enough they were able to paint all three with cool colors and got them done in an hour. There's a first time for everything!

Monochromatic Portraits

These mini portraits are being created by 3rd and 4th graders.

Eventually I plan on installed these in big rainbow hallway display.

Cezanne Inspired Still-Life

We talked about still-life drawing and created a quick still-life in our idea books. Then we looked at a still-life with apples as a class to draw from.

We also talk about warm and cool colors and how to use them to show contrast in our paintings.

Teacher Portraits

Each 4th grader painted a portrait of either their classroom teacher or the principal. These are a big hit!

Kinder Self-portraits

We did these little "free draw" activities when we finished painting our Royal Self-Portraits.
