This was another fun art project that the kids got really excited about especially when I told them they would be the star of their art. 😉 Inspired by Norman Rockwell’s The Connoisseur, we created our own versions of the painting but with felt, crayons and construction paper. I told the students to create the most wackiest drawing they could imagine…oh, they definitely had a blast doing that. The final product turned out so well! They all look so adorable with their cute little poses. 🙂
I don’t know if it’s my pregnancy cravings kicking in or the fact that we just learned about taste buds in our human body unit in class, but burgers were definitely on my mind. It’s no wonder I decided to introduce Claes Oldenburg’s famous art work to the students in my class…especially, his famous floor burger. Hence, the making of our big and juicy burger pop art began! =) The kids absolutely loved building their gigantic burgers and were super creative with what they wanted to add to it. They suggested different kinds of cheese (swiss, cheddar, provolone), vegetables and even sauces like mayonnaise and triple o’ sauce (you’d know what that is if you’ve ever been to white spot). I think my little hamburger helpers did a fantastic job, don’t you? Thanks for reading. =)
The students literally oooh’d and ahhh’d when I told them we were starting our owl unit this week. Their enthusiasm truly inspires me to constantly hunt for new and fun lesson plans. =) These guys went “goo-goo-ga-ga” over the fact that they got to use sharpies for this art project. Oh, how easily content they are at this age. 😉 They drew their owls on telephone book pages via directed drawing from me. I really love the fact that every owl looked different than the other. How lucky am I to have a class of students that embraces creativity! Thanks for stopping by today! xoxo, C.
