Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me

This craft is based upon the book Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle. We began by reading the book, a lot! We re-read at least once every day that we did this craft. It was a great conversation starter about waning and waxing moons, and we even went into solar systems when one child asked me if the moon was bigger than the sun. We also touched on collage a little and how Eric Carle's pictures are all done using collage and paper. In this craft we only used collage for the moons, which the kids did collaboratively. We started by painting the sheet of paper. I gave them both green sparkly paint and blue sparkly paint and the just combined them and smeared them around as much as they wanted. I really like how the brush stokes added some twirls and lines! We then collaged a piece of paper with white tissue paper and a grey paper. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of that process. When it was dry I cut out the circles. The children then glued down the moon, stars, and ladder, which was small sized Popsicle sticks. I took pictures of the children from a ladder and added them on.

In the Art Room: A Winter Mural Collaborative

So this story of Winter Mural Collaborativity begins with a simple request from my amazing music teacherin' friend: to create a piece for the winter program. The making of this beast involved multiple grade levels with one incident of two classes working simultaneously and another where third grade created alongside kindergarten "buddies". Confused yet? Not as much as my art teacherin' friend Jennifer's daughter was when she popped by for a visit. "I just don't understand why this is on the floor!" Girl. At well over eight yards in length, it was the only place I had for it! But at least that meant there was plenty of room to spread out and paint! So just how did the kids create this masterpiece of monstrous proportions? Like, I mean, mammothly monstrous. It started when two of my second grade teacher buddies both had to be out for an hour. I offered to take their classes which they thought to be super gracious...what they didn't know was that I was gonna put their kids to work. We called it a Painting Party! The kids were to go to their usual seats but, because of lack of chairs, were told not to sit. They'd need to stand to reach the entire paper anyway! A pattern was started on their large bulletin papers by me and their goal was to finish the patterns. Once complete, I'd pull their paper off their table, ask them what color paper they'd like to tackle next and what they thought they'd like their winter-y pattern to be. After an hour, we had a dozen large painted sheets of paper. My music teacher buddy Kiera and I assembled the papers to create the landscape the day before Thanksgiving break. I even put that girl on painting duty, she outlined all of the hills! Sadly, no photos were snapped...but you can see a very similar process in this mural creation and this one! On our half day before break, I arranged for a kindergarten class to come at the same time as a third grade one. I did this mostly because my poor kindergarten kids have fallen a pinch behind due to scheduling. I thought it would be a fun way to catch them up. Little did I know just how much the third graders would LOVE working with their "little buddies!" Once all of my kinder and third graders were seated, I gave them the basics on building a house. Pick out two squares, cut one into a triangle, glue as the roof. Decorate. Add details. DONE. For my third grade kids, this was a larger version of the houses they created for the Houses to Help. By the end of the thirty minutes, we had a stack of these colorful beauties. When I told the kids that class was over, the third graders seriously said, AW! and hugged their sweet little friends good-bye. It was the cutest thing ever and I can't wait to do something like that again! On Monday of this week, back from break, I laid the mural out and had some second graders go to town painting some trees. It was a fun review of value (dif greens), shape (of the trees), texture (of the branches) and space (painting different sizes of trees). AND collaboration! Did I mention we played the music program songs the entire time? We got our practicin' in, y'all! Love them trees! NOT TO MENTION, the program was fabulous! Special thanks to Kiera for the awesome program (and mad painting skillz), my P.E. teacherin' buddies for helping me hang that masterpiece...and the young artists that made it all possible!

1st Grade - Rainbow Fish!

This lesson is an original by Julie Werkman, who I student taught with 25 years ago. It is a great lesson for teaching the elements of art! Line, shape, color, texture, and value are all worked in! Any fishy book of your choice maybe the inspiration! First, we paint some light to dark blue waves on a large 18x24 blue construction paper for our fish bowl. I pre-trace the fish bowl on the back of the paper before the next class, then students cut out and add seaweed and rocks! After painting a 9x12 paper with rainbow, or just in a colorful way, we trace a basic fish shape on the paper. Students design their top and bottom fins, plus scales and tale. Once we cut out the rainbow fish, we glue it on and add some metallic smaller fish! I precut small metallic fish for everyone, students decorate and design their fish and glue them on! I add a tiny piece of cardboard to the back of the metallic fish, gives them a little pop out look. Finished!
