Third graders look closely at Laurel Burch’s cat paintings and use an oil pastel resist process to interpret a cat of their own. Next, color theory is studied, and they choose a color scheme for their painting. William did a great job of using red, orange and yellow to demonstrate his mastery of the color, and wet-in-wet technique to show he could rock the watercolor.

Third graders make slab boxes in the clay unit, and then use them as a base for an animal sculpture. Here’s a few cuties I snapped pix of before they went into the kiln. How about the lid on that bird? I love it

First graders put on a fabulous production of The Little Red Hen last week, so in collaboration with the music teacher the kids and I took two weeks of the sculpture unit and created these mask/hats. Each kid made a structure to hold it on his/her head, then used folded, cut and glued paper to make it into whatever farm animal the child chose. It was fast and furious, and I didn’t think to get any pix until the day of the play, so I apologize for the terrible photography. Great project, though – pretty paper intensive, but amazingly high interest. The kids were SO invested in their animals, and were super excited to bring them home after the performance.
