On to famous artists. My teammate Katie is an ah.ma.zing artist. I wish her creativity would seep into my veins, but until that day, I just use her ideas! With the laptops, students who finished the Kandinsky’s began a hunt for famous artists info. They used a chart to find birthdate, style, famous pieces, etc. She also found art coloring pages. We printed these and let the kiddos choose from American Gothic; The Bedroom, Sunflowers, and Starry Night (all Van Gogh), Sunday Afternoon (Seurat), or Marilyn Monroe (Warhol). Here’s the link to the sheets. The kids kept saying our art was “inspired by…”. We read Love that Dog this year! SO sweet!
They are stunning. Not kidding. nd here's why. A frame makes anything look great! I think I will start wearing a frame around my head!
I was at Toys R Us looking for Hunger Games do dads when I might have wandered to the book section. Thus the art section, thus Doug and Melissa coloring books
$4.99 for 48 page pad! That was enough for both our classes and a few leftover for my little ones at home! I let each kid choose their frame. After finishing their coloring sheet, I cut out the white middle and taped the frame over the coloring page. Then laminated. Freakin’ gorgeous! They will be the backdrop for our awards tomorrow all strung across the window and front board.
Farley. Don’t you like the sequin free-for-all!
