Hello all! I know I have been gone for a while. I have had a pretty busy summer so far and took a break from blogging.
I had an art camp last week with K-2nd graders and had a really fun time. I was able to experiment with new techniques and try out some art projects from my fellow art teachers in the blogging community. Sharing is just grand! I wanted to post some images of the kids and their projects so you can see what we are up to. I will probably break down a couple of the projects.
Also, I am starting a new blog called Click and Drag. It's focus is on exploring technology. I have been teaching computer for the past couple of years and want to share some of my ideas and experiences. Next week I will be having a digital art camp so for all you art teachers who are looking to integrate some technology and art, you might want to take a peek.
I found this at Miss Tabarcea's blog. She had a great video lesson on this project. The kids really enjoyed it and it was very easy to do.
These projects are from Deep Space Sparkle. It was the "Red Fish, Blue Fish" project she did that was based on the Dr. Seuss Book. I showed the kids how to draw the fish either standing up or from the side. I just love how bright and colorful these paintings turned out.
We also did scratch art, evening cityscapes. The kids colored with oil pastels that filled the entire 9x12 piece of paper and then painted over the pastels with black acrylic paint. The kids then used scratch sticks to draw in the skyline. Pretty easy!
We did a few more projects and I will post more of those later.
