Snowmen at Night

We looked at the beautiful illustrations from the book Snowmen at Night and talked about value, tint and shade. Next, students drew a snowman showing an understanding of what they learned!

One Point Perspective Names

My home school group learned about one point perspective while creating these! Aren't they awesome!

Van Gogh Shrinks

Abstract Picasso Portraits

We studied the art and life of Pablo Picasso and then my home schoolers were given the assignment of drawing an abstract Picasso style portrait. They used a wet paint brush over washable markers to give it a watercolor look.

Grant Wood Farm landscapes

Here are my home school group's second art project! We learned about the life and art of Grant Wood before they were given the assignment of drawing a realistic farm landscape, showing depth. We talked about the parts of a landscape: foreground, middle ground, background and horizon line. The kids blew me away with their attention to detail and the amount of effort they put into their drawings! I love these!
