Would You Rather...and a little get to know ya ART!

 This was our first week of school activity for me to get to know my students a little more and get them to have some discussions. This also let me see how they designed and used their own creativity.  Some students tried to rush through their pieces while others spent their time working on every detail.
I made the power point here:

This made it easy for the kids to see and discuss.

5th Grade was a Barrel of Monkeys!

Last 5th grade fun project with my 5th grade monkeys...we did warm and cool colors drawing our versions of the Barrel of Monkeys!  I had them add captions...quite funny.

Lady Liberty, Peter Max & Andy Warhol

                                                                                               My 4th graders made these cool pieces after learning about 2 artist Andy Warhol & Peter Max.  We looked at several pieces of their art work and did a study on Lady Liberty.  We looked at the map of New York and discussed what other landmarks were in New York.  Some of my classes did the print making piece with foam and my final classes did theirs in the style of Peter Max with water colors.  Unfortunately my print making photos were deleted and these are all I have to show, but they did a great job!  Each student created a red, white and blue background for their artwork to be mounted on as well.
We used this book The Story of the Statue of Liberty by Maestro to learn more about Lady Liberty.
