Warren Kimble, Vermont Folk Artist

First and second grade artists looked at art by Vermont Folk Artist Warren Kimble.  They chose a farm animal to draw and colored with crayons, making sure that the whole picture was covered with a thick, waxy layer of color.  In order to make our pictures look old, like Kimble's, we crumpled them up and painted a black watercolor wash over the whole picture.  I pressed the pictures under many heavy books to get out the wrinkles.  


  1. Great naive artwork and I especially like the young artists work. Keep up the good work!!!

    1. Thank you! The students loved Kimble's fat farm animals and learning about folk art.
