Kindergarten art projects
First Grade Wow
The kids were given a paper jar to cut out...tricky cutting out the inside! :) The jars were laminated and the film was left in the middle. We then fingerprinted the wings of fireflies with glow in the dark neon paint. Add a silver sharpie body and voila!! So cute!! The kids had a ball!! We will hang these from the ceiling!!
Expressionism: Sharing Your Emotions - Abrakadoodle
Encourage your child to try creating art that expresses emotion. The art shown here is inspired by Expressionist artist Wassily Kandinsky's "Concentric Circles." Use simple shapes and bold color. You child may want to start with larger shapes, and then create more shapes within shapes. Play with color and suggest that your child select colors that make him/her happy! Older children may wish to experiment with abstract expressionism by creating an image, such as the head shown above. Have fun...
Robot Directed Drawing
Direct Drawings are so fun for students! This is just a quick set of instructions for guiding your class through a directed drawing of a robot for anytime of year. Also included is a writing activity page to go along with the drawing.Another idea would be to leave the instructions in your writing or art station and have kids create them on their own.
Art with Mr. Giannetto
Torn Paper Owlets - We began by drawing the owl step-by-step and ripping brown paper to create the owl's feathers. Ripping the paper was a great way to work on fine motor skill development. The students practiced cutting by tracing two cups for the yellow eyes and cutting them out. They added details such as legs, eyes, and a beak to complete the baby owl.
