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.

Put a bird on it

This is a new project that I am doing with my 3rd graders.  We used bleeding tissue paper to make the background.  Then pull some black paint  to make the trees. Then put that cardinal bird in it.   Go Cards!!
