Art By Me fundraiser 2013! 5th grade parrots

I know I do this project every year, but I have to admit, it's one of my favorites!!  It's perfect for teaching drawing, proportion, color, and the list goes on!  This year's parrots, as always, turned out fantastic!  I love them more every year!  This is for our fundraiser project that we do through a local company called Art By Me.  It's fantastic because students can have their artwork "published" onto a product they love.  Check it out for your school at


 I gave them color wheels to help them figure out which colors would blend well into others.  Most of them chose to do them in color wheel order, but I gave them the freedom to do them in any order they wished.

 Love the leaves in this one!!
