A Bird’s Eye View of a Snowman

Bridge and Kindergarten students were busy in the art room this week working on one of their Artware by You projects. This piece was winter themed depicting a cute snowman from a birds eye view point. See the original post at the following link http://tinyartroom.wordpress.com/2012/10/27/aerial-view-snowmen/

The first step was for the students to create the background for their snowmen. This was done using the crayon resist technique. They were instructed to draw snowflake designs with a white crayon. Children always love the magic of seeing their hidden designs come to life when they add water color paint. The next step was to construct their snowmen. Three circles of different sizes were used. The students were instructed to color the outside edge of each circle with a blue crayon. They glued the circles, stacked on top of each other. Details were added; a scarf, a nose and arms with construction paper. Eyes and a mouth were drawn with a black crayon. The snowman was then glued to the background. As an added bonus the children watched the movie, The Snowman, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZE9KpobX9J8 a magical movie about how a little boy’s snowman comes to life. The flying snowman helped to reinforce the bird’s eye view of their own compositions. I love these chubby snowmen 🙂
