Last night, the kids got to show off some of their art work from this past session at an Art Gallery Night. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it because I was a "little" under the weather. I really wish I could have been there but I heard it went really well and the kids enjoyed showing off their work to their family and friends. My girls participated in the class and here is some of their art work...
This fish was drawn in black glue (made by mixing a small amount of black paint with Elmer's glue. You mix this right in the tube then squeeze out your design. Simple and fun but be sure to let it dry thoroughly before adding paint or color!). Bright pastels were used to color in the picture and background.
This heart was drawn with black glue then color was added with watercolor paints.
This picture was inspired by Eric Carle. He made most of his illustrations by painting on paper then tearing or cutting the paper into different designs to create a collage effect.
