Our clay reliefs got finished yesterday. What a relief! I really wanted students to be able to wrap up projects before maternity leave.
One student from each group came to paint them while I was teaching my other classes.
This is what they came up with.
Each group of 5th graders got to choose one painting from a group of pieces that I teach throughout K-5.
|Old school. Eric Carle is one of the first artists we study together in First Grade.|
|Hungry caterpillar head. Love the fingers.|
|After painting it green, he had a great time splattering and scratching paint on the surface of the caterpillar.|
|Van Gogh, sorry, but I think kids see sunflowers best. These are so happy!|
|Gives me goosebumps. Love it.|
|Monet's Waterlilies fired and ready to paint.|
|Captured Mona like only a child could.|
|The eyes have it!|
|Finding the right skin color was a challenge.|
|Mona is fired and ready to paint!|
|Original art works taped on cabinets for reference.|
