Rainbow Fish with Watercolor Crayon Resist


Wayne Thiebaud Cupcakes with Chalk

We read the book Snowballs. In the book, the narrator creates a snowman, a snow girl, a snow boy, a snow dog, etc. with everyday household items. We created ours by tracing and cutting out circles of white paper. We added buttons, bead, foam shapes and craft sticks for the details on our snow creations.

We created Very Hungry Caterpillars by cutting and gluing some papers we painted. We added some details with crayons too. Learn more about Eric Carle and his books here.

We created paintings with watercolors and crayons.

We created painting of Fall trees using warm colors (red, yellow and orange.)

Mandalas with Sand Painting 

We have been learning about Native American forms of art, including weaving, sand painting and pottery. We wove pieces of yarn into burlap. Learn more about weaving here.

We learned about the artist and author Faith Ringgold. After reading Tar Beach as a class, we created paintings of special places. In the book, the main character flies over some special places that we would like to own. Some of us included places we would like to fly over to make them ours. 

We created self-portraits of ourselves with pets or animals we like.
