Waht a great idea to use a coffe filter for the tutu!
These are adorable! How did the boys react to drawing ballerinas?
I thought I may have some boys complain, but that wasn't the case! They enjoyed it just as much as the girls. I wouldn't do it w/any older than 1st grade though....I also say to the class, Degas was a boy and he painted ballerinas, so we can too!
Great idea! I'm teaching an art class for a dance camp this summer, and I can really use this
Thanks a million for this wonderful idea, I've done it this month with my 6 years old kids and they loved it. You can see their works at my bloghttp://artecontusmanitas.wordpress.com/2014/03/28/las-bailarinas-de-degas-para-ninos/
I did these with my grade 1 students and it went over great! I put them up on a bulletin board together with my grade 6's Edgar Degas art. Confessions of a Modern Day Substitute Teacher
