Large Butterflies by Third and Fourth Grade

Third and fourth grade artists worked with partners to make giant butterflies.  They chose different butterflies and moths from around the world.  We discussed symmetry and color mixing.  They outlined with permanent markers and then painted with liquid watercolor paints.

Pre-K Pumpkin Patch and Nighttime Pictures

Pre-K artists made collage pumpkin faces using cut paper and nighttime pictures with gel markers and construction paper crayons.  They loved watching the gel marker ink "magically" appear as it dried. 

My example.  Pre-K'ers love to sign "Five Little Pumpkins."

Collages by First and Second Graders inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflowers

I cannot figure out why some images are sideways.  It's just one of those days!  Sorry!
