Papier Mache Mini Birds


In Art class, third graders learned all about cardinals. They are such a popular bird, seven states have named them their state bird! We also learned that the male cardinals are bright red and the females are brown. Students painted cardinals on a branch on a snowy day. Beautiful work third graders!

Art class is a Hoot!

In Art class, 3rd graders reviewed the primary colors; red, yellow and blue and the secondary colors; orange, green and purple. Students painted a large piece of paper using the primary colors to mix the secondary colors. Next, they practiced their cutting and gluing skills to create these awesome owls!

Warm/Cool Suns

In Art class, 4th graders studied different types of lines while creating these sun drawings. Students also had to show an understanding of warm and cool colors while they were coloring their designs with markers. *Thank you to my friend over at "what's happening in the art room" blog for this idea!*

First Grade Line Paintings

In art class, we studied different types of lines. First graders created a drawing of lines like zigzag, wavy, curved and diagonal. Students also learned the difference between vertical and horizontal lines. They traced over their drawing with black crayon. Finally,they finished their artwork by painting in the spaces with watercolor paints.

Warm/Cool Snowmen Paintings

In Art class, 3rd graders reviewed different types of lines; horizontal, vertical, zigzag, diagonal, dotted, dashed, and curved. They used different types of lines to draw the snowmen that you see. Next, 3rd graders reviewed the warm colors (red, orange, yellow) and cool colors (blue, green, purple) while painting their artworks. I have seen this lesson all over Pinterest and am not sure of where the orginal lesson came from. Whom ever you are, thank you!
