Draw a wavy line, the ground. Draw several christmas trees. Simple triangles are okay, this lesson is about overlap - not all the trees next to each other. Decorate the trees with balls and garlands and draw presents under the trees. Colour with oil pastels. Use white oilpastel for snowflakes.
Paint with liquid watercolor, the ground has to stay white.
Paint a white sheet with yellow and orange liquid water colour paint. Enlarge the pattern and trace it on the black sheet using carbon paper. Put a cross in the parts that have to been cut. Cut the pattern and paste it on the coloured sheet.
Draw Halloween details with black marker. Use the white chalk pastel for details on the black paper.
Gerald would love to join in with the other animals at the Junge Dance, but everyone knows that giraffes can't dance ... or can they?
This lesson can be used by the book 'Giraffes can't dance' by Giles Andeae and Guy Parker-Rees.
Read the book of Gerald the Giraffe. After this children draw a giraffe that's trying to dance. Colour with oilpastels. Colour a background with soft pastel. Cut the giraffe and paste it on the background.
Roll a piece of bubble wrap in with yellow paint and print it. Let dry.
Make fingerprints in brown paint and let dry.
Draw lines with yellow pencil on the body of the bee.
Draw wings and legs with black fine liner.
This lesson is about the flower pots you'll see in spring and summer.
The students get a large piece of oloured construction paper for the background. Paste the window in the middle of it, with the white strips on it as a inner frame. Cut a pot from black paper. Draw and paint flowers on the white sheet. Cut them after drying with an edge of 1 cm. Paste them in front of the window. Paste the pot on the flowers. Decorate the pot with paint.
I came across this great lesson for our first graders on Deep Space Sparkle. What a fun our students had, making these cute little birds in the style of James Rizzi!
James Rizzi was born in 1950 in Brooklyn. He studied art in Florida (Gainesville), where he started experimenting with printing, painting and sculpting. Rizzi’s work often shows his birthplace New York. His paintings look sometimes childishly naive, with the bright colours and brilliant gaiety. In the art press Rizzi is often described as "Urban Primitive Artist '. Rizzi himself says he is influenced byzelf Picasso, Klee and Dubuffet.
Show some paintings of Rizzi and discuss the characteristics:
no gradations within colours
evertything is outlined with a black marker
the artwork is full and busy
background is full and busy too
white drawing sheets A4 size cut lengthwise
scissors and glue
blue cardboard A1 size for background
Discuss birds in Rizzi's artwork (google onRizzi + birds) and ask students if the typical Rizzi features are in the bird artworks too.
The goal for this lesson:
Use oilpastel to draw a bird just like Rizzi did. Use watercolour paint and paint the bird in one or two colours. Paint the background with several colours.
Make a fence on the sheet with masking tape. Draw a horizontal line above the fence. Stamp with different colours the meadow. Do not mix the paint. Stamp some spring flowers too.
Stamp the air in the same way with white and blue.
Remove the masking tape. Do this when the paint is still wet.
Cut some clouds for the body of the sheep out of a white sheet. Cut heads and feet out of black paper. Paste the sheep before the fence. Draw eyes and beak with white pencil.
The best nest for birds in winter is a colourful one! This birdhouse will protect birdies against snow and cold.
Students draw a birdhouse and colour it in with oil pastels. Perhaps there's also a peanut pendulum on the house. Draw snowflakes (white oil pastel) and also a layer of snow on the house.
Paint the background with liquid watercolor. Leave about 1 cm white on the edges for an extra winter look. Draw (or print) a bird on another piece of paper and cut it. Paste it in the house using 3D tape for a spatial effect (the pads that are used to create 3D cards).
Draw a grid from 3 by 3 cm. Trace a sourcer for a circle. Draw a tree and be sure the branches are within the cirle. Draw patterns in the the tree using a fine black marker. Colour the squares in the circle in warm colours, the squares outside the circle in cool colours. Be sure the difference between under and above the horizon line is visible.
