Kindergarten and 1st grade worked on their second ‘Artware by You’ project this week and this one was Christmas themed. This art work was a mixed media composition, consisting of water color paint, construction paper, crayons and markers.
To create the background, students were given a sheet of watercolor paper. They painted the paper with clear water first and then added the paint. They discovered that by wetting the paper first, the colors spread easily. They used blue and purple to create a dynamic night sky. These were left to dry while the students worked on adding details with crayon to the roof top and chimney. Next these pieces were glued on to the background. Rudolph was constructed from a variety of circle shapes. These were also glued to the background. Antlers, ears, eyes, tail and legs were added with a marker pen. The final touch to give these pictures a wintery feel was adding snow. Students dipped the end of their paint brushes into white paint and created snow dots all over their pictures. Just adorable!
Love these 🙂
