This was in preparation for an art project I did with the grade 7s. I found this very fun project online here. It was a very fun project that even those kids who struggle with realistic drawing could do well at!
After doing a project for the grade 7s on Picasso I was inspired to make this guitarist…
This was in a time after I had recently done Keith Haring with the grade 7s. I was feeling a little down and this beautiful image is what resulted. I did the one with the small creatures first. I just randomly scribbled and then turned the scribble into something. I then chose a few of those somethings and drew them bigger. 🙂
I got my grade 3s to design their own Dr Seuss like character. I showed them how he kind of took an existing creature and then changed it. I took a bat and made this guy. 🙂 The school had big bins that were being used to hold plans that they were going to throw away. My grade 3s and I took the bins, covered them with paper mache, painted their rims and legs and placed them around the entrance to the hall. We then put cocktail sticks on our creatures and stuck them into the bins!
My grade 5s had to come up with what their dream was and then draw this on either a black piece of paper (like the one above) or a white piece of paper. I was ‘kind of’ joking when I said it was my dream to be a king…Kind of…
The theme for the end of the year celebration last year was the book, “Oh the places you’ll go!”, by Dr Seuss. I got all my classes involved in decorating! I decided that my grade 7s could take a quote from the book and design a cool, Dr Seuss like page for it. This was my example for them.
Two little projects I did. The cup was for a grade 7 project where they dipped string in glue and wrapped it around a cup. When it dried we painted it. This was my test.
The sign was made because a parent of the school was pushing me. They were saying that traffic outside the school gets bad and, “couldn’t I make a sign that tells them to move on?” When I did eventually, I gave it to the school security guard who handles traffic, he wanted a STOP sign as well, so I made one for the back of this. 🙂
Practice for a class I did on “Where the wild things are”. The kids would have to come up with a new wild thing by combining different creatures.
I did this sketch while my grade 7s were doing a project on the artist, Keith Haring. It was very fun! I took the photo on my phone and it was somewhat blown out in parts but gives the idea. 🙂
I did this artwork during an adult art class I teach. It was meant to be a rough, quick, charcoal sketch of myself. The colour that I did in the background was an idea I got from one of those in the class! I used Teddy dye.
