First grade just finished up their ladybugs for Art By Me. It's taken us a little longer to finish this year with all the special extra things going on in my schools. Some classes have had field trips and we've also had music programs they've needed to practice for so we're finally getting things finished up for the fundraiser this year. Art By Me money is used to purchase supplies for art that I may not normally be able to afford with my normal budget. One of the things like to purchase is Crayola Color sticks. They're so much easier to use than crayons or colored pencils and the vibrance of the colors is just fantastic. We used them for our haunted house project that I posted earlier this week. Here's the link in case you missed them:
4th grade is finishing up these fantastic chameleons this week! We drew our chameleons by picking out the basic shapes, such as a triangle for the head. Then we discussed their environment and the different types and textures of foliage we could include. I gave them color wheels and briefly discussed patterns before turning them loose with paint!
