Art work on display at the Spring Open House Student Art Show
May 2012
The 3rd grade artists had a lot of fun
with this one day project. I showed them how to draw a very simple U shaped human face. We reviewed the placement and shape of the features. On sketch paper they made several quick drawings. The last element was the crazy bedhead hair. When the students had a sketch they liked they were given heavy art paper and crayons. They drew the portrait with crayon allowing parts to flow off the page. They had a very limited time to complete this drawing. Then, using liquid watercolors they filled in all of the paper. The result was so very fun and wacky, there was a lot of laughter during this project.
