Warhol Flowers

Just realized I never posted these fantastic Warhol-inspired flowers that 1st grade made! We started with squares of colored paper. Then we used paint scrapers to add scratchy black paint. Once those were dry, we drew and cut simple flowers to add. Easy process and a knockout at the art show!

Elements & Principles Pack

I recently finished part of a project I have been working on for a while. I am working towards creating an entire elements & principles of art curriculum for lower elementary. Today I finished the pages of the student workbook. I am sharing a link to the pages here on my TPT in case you would like to use them in your classroom. See previews of a few pages below. The entire pack includes 17 student activities, book covers, and answer keys. Check back in the future for more resources, search the tag TPT!

Tiles Installation

SO proud of 5th grade's work on their legacy tiles! We drew on ceramic tiles with permanent markers, then dripped rubbing alcohol onto them. Simple as that! These tiles will be a backsplash around the water fountains. I am moving on from this school this year, but I hope their new teacher will carry on this tradition with 5th grade next year!

A Spooktacular Pumpkin Patch!

All students in grades k-3 made an oil pastel resist pumpkin to add to our pumpkin patch. There were WAY more than I anticipated, but I love this display!

Everyone loved this lesson from Art Projects for Kids, simple monsters! This was a good refresher of warm and cool colors. We used neon oil pastels and watercolors.

Here Come the Mummies

4th grade studied Egyptian mythology this year and we made mummies! 
We also made paper boxes with hieroglyphs for our sarcophagi. This was a fun project, will definitely do again!

Fricken Love Bats

This lesson is from Easy, Peasy, and Fun. Art club made adorable bat artworks! I gave them die-cut bats and warm colored paints. We used sponge brushes to add texture and waited for them to dry. Then we saw our bats magically appear!
