Cut Paper Owls and Oil Pastel, ages 7-9

I enjoy seeing the textures created using cut paper. We enhanced the owls with oil pastel moons and branches on a 18x22 inch card stock.

Swim Mask Observations, ages 7-9

I saw an example of a similar project and thought it would be a great way to say so long to summer time and still work on patterns in the background. Tempera on 18x22 inch card stock.

Optical Illusion Art Project, ages 8-12

Back for a new year with a wonderful group of students. I have been researching many new projects, some online and some from my head and this weeks project I got from Rundes Room who got it from  We heart art . The internet is a wonderful place to share/exchange ideas. I am always happy when I see that another teacher has used my ideas! Anyway, this was a great first of the year project to assess where everyone is at and to have fun with color (we made color wheels first) and then do the step by step to see how each one came out. Lots of "wow, cool..." when these were done! 12x14 inches on card stock with marker and crayon.
