Art club first project

So this I am doing art club.  We had a great group of 4th and 5th graders that came together to work on this project.  We had groups of 4-5 students pregroup to make one sclputure.  Some of the student want to be wrapped up and some didn't.   We took cling wrap to wrap the students first. Then they took packing tape and wrapped the student in at least 4 layers of tape to make it strong.  After we got all the parts they put them all together to make one person. Then they add some fun stuff to them.

You better watch out.

We all know that Cassie Stephens is one of the best dresses art teachers around.   But I think I could give her a run for the Tuseday only title for best dressed.  Because every Tuesday is bow tie Tuesday.  So this is a challenge to all the male art teacher come on and step it up on Tuesday and join in on the fun.  Come on Mr.E. You know you want to do this.

Britto Animals

This was my 5th grade project.  We first talked about who Britto was and what type of art he made.  

Then we made a background.  With all my 5th grades I changed it up every time I did the project.  To try and figure out which way would look the best. Ally were a crayon resist just different lines.  

So I wanted to know what my student knew about the color wheel. So I gave them a little color wheel pretest.  To see what color groups we need to work on.  So we draw are Britto style animal and divided it up into alest 8 parts   One for each color groups we talks about. Then we colored them in using the color groups with oil pastels which all students love.  Outline with black and then glued onto the background.  

First time doing this project. I think it was a great success.  

Thanks for tuneing in to my messy art room.
