Dreaming of Spring

The children returned after the Martin Luther King holiday and I thought it would be fitting to do an art project based on ‘dreams’. They learned a little about the Russian artist Paul Chagall an artist known for his ‘dream-like’ paintings. Their dream paintings were about warmer weather, something we’re missing right now! Each student was given an oval shaped, skin colored piece of construction paper. This was to be their face. They were instructed to cut out a mouth, nose and some rosy cheeks from red and pink construction paper and draw a pair of sleeping eyes. They each painted a background using water color paint and paper in either warm or cool colors. Once dry they glued on their face and painted some hair with tempera paints. The last step was adding some bright, flowers as if growing from the top of their head. These pictures make me smile 🙂

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.
