My last rotation of classes had to take a little hiatus on the art projects we've been working on (and so very close to finishing) to help the PTA and classroom teachers out with an Original Works project.
If you don't know what Original Works is check it out here. It's very much like Artsonia, but only focuses on creating one art project. It's a great fundraiser for the school and the orders usually come in around the holidays so they can make for fun gifts.
All of these projects were one day lessons. I helped the 5th and 6th graders get started and whatever they did not finish they were to finish on their own.
This was the kindergarten lesson. Just a very simple flower done with oil pastels and watercolor.
1st and 2nd graders made this fun fish using oil pastels and watercolor. They all really loved making the silly fish lips.
Per request 3rd grade took a wintry approach and made these snowman with oil pastels and watercolors.
4th graders made these funky parrots. It was their first time using liquid watercolors, they had a lot of fun with it!
5th graders made these lizards. I wish I had more pictures of these to share because there were some that were on their way to being masterpieces!
6th Graders made these hand trees. The idea came from here. In drawing their hand they were asked to come up with a theme or to create an about me tree. I was surprised at how nicely some of them turned out.
SO MANY projects are being graded and finished up this week, I can't wait to share what the kiddos have been working hard on!
