George Catlin inspired Native American Art & Lots of Books

After we found out that George Catlin's artwork is hanging in the Smithsonian Museum and that he traveled here in Arkansas where he kept a journal and created many art works about the Native Americans he lived with...we were sure our art work would be museum worthy!My 2nd & 3rd graders did the buffalo influenced by George Catlin.  Power point is on my author stream see at the bottom of the blog.


 My kindergarten and 1st graders did the Indian and the Paint Brush landscapes and added some cool scrapbook teepee's.  Loved the water color sunsets!  See more below

     The book Buffalo Hunt has great facts and several of Catlin's pieces in it.                             

4th grade made these cool tepee sculptures I found on pinterest.  I have no idea where they came from, the link was not working when I tried...so if you know where credit is due please pass it on.

We are working on some feather print making as well...but I haven't been as happy with these results yet.
