Popsicles on a Hot Day
This was a quick one day project. Beforehand, we took toilet paper tubes and pinched them in the middle and then taped them so that they held that position. Then we hot glued two popsicle sticks to the toilet paper tube. The students then painted it a solid color and added a pattern to it.
This is one of Jen Dahl's lessons that I taught while at Fall Creek. First, we drew cars and then traced them with markers. The next class, we painted the cars with tempera cakes and then glued brown strips onto our background to begin creating the garage. For the last class, we cut out and glued the car onto our background. Then we drew some things that we might find in our garage and colored some of the objects with cray-pas. Next time, I would like to talk about foreground, middle ground, background with this lesson.
Cezanne Still -Life
This was one of Tasha's lessons. We talked about what a still-life and point-of-view was. We then looked at some fruit at our tables and drew them with a top-down p-o-v (making sure not to forget to draw our plate). Then they used the back of a spoon to paint the fruit using tempera. We talked about light source and adding a highlight and shadow to our fruit. Next, we outlined everything with a black crayoned. Then they used liquid watercolor to paint the plate a solid color. Lastly, they used liquid watercolor to paint the rest of the background and assortment of colors by placing random 'splotches' of paint.
