Patterned Turtles on a Paint Blown Background

 The final turtle art project of the week had the Kindergarten and 1st grade students exploring different ways to move paint around on paper by blowing through a straw and creating designs by dragging the end of a paintbrush through two layers of paint.  THe background is a little reminiscent of Jackson Pollock perhaps?

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
