Projects in Progress

Work, work, work, work! This is a busy time of the year and it get’s a little hard to post new project details. I wanted to at least share what each grade level is working on. I will be posting pictures of finished artwork as soon as I get a chance.

1st Grade: Angel Collage

Last year I had 1st grade create watercolor resist angels just like this. However, I do so many watercolor resist projects I decided to change up the medium.


  • 2 - 12x18 white paper
  • Black Crayon
  • Tempera paint
  • Pencil

1. I had the first graders draw with me step-by-step. I gave them a few options on drawing the facial features and I let them choose what their hair will look like.


2. Paint with tempera paints. We talked about tints and mixing white with a color to create a tint. Make sure they do not paint over the crayon line too much. If they do you can retrace.


3. With blue tempera, completely paint the second sheet of paper.


4. Dip and lightly tap with the tip of the brush to create stars.


5. Cut, cut, cut. Oops! I forgot wings. No problem. It’s an easy fix.


6. Glue and DONE!


Here are some finished angels that the students made. I changed my mind and decided to let the kids color their angels with crayon.

Of course I had to make a bulletin board with all the 2nd grade monsters. Everyone just thought they were the cutest things. Here are a few pictures close up. There were so many go ones.
