2nd and 3rd grade worked on a second project for the ‘Artware by You’ fundraiser. This project served as their Christmas themed art piece. Students were instructed to draw two, intersecting, curved lines on their blue piece of construction paper. These lines were the snowy hills. On top of the hills were to stand the houses. Students drew a row of parallel, vertical lines that were the sides of the buildings. They were then guided to draw the rooves of the buildings. To help them visualize the shape they needed, they were told to think of the shape of a Hershey Kiss! They then drew a second row of vertical, parallel lines behind the first row of houses. This gives the picture depth. Once they had drawn the outlines they were then encouraged to use as many brightly colored oil pastels as they could. To finish off their Bethlehem scene, they added stars. Wonderful job! These pictures will make fabulous cards don’t you think?
