First and third grade students created large colorful collage-based flowers for our final project this year.
Students chose a stencil shape and traced the shape on painted paper and cut it out.
After cutting out the large flower shape, students began to add various colors and shapes to their flower.
This required concentration as everyone had a unique idea for completing their flower.
There was a lot of energy as students worked hard to complete their colorful flowers.
Gluing was the final step to put all of the pieces together on their flowers.
Students enjoyed using the painted paper to create something new from something old.
Here are some examples of the students’ work:
Fourth grade students created cards for Christmas this year.
Students first created their own paper by adding crayon.
Next they used tempera paint and paint scrapers to add more color and texture to the paper.
After allowing the paper to dry, everyone used the painted paper along with other papers to create a personalized card.
Many students chose to create a Christmas tree design.
It was fun to see everyone use their imaginations as they enjoyed being part of the creative process.
Students love to create art to give to someone they care about.
The fourth graders incorporated an assortment of materials into their card project. Everyone was excited with the cards they created.
Fourth grade students had fun creating painted paper.
Students began by adding color with crayon on their large paper, working as a group.
Everyone enjoyed the kinetic feel of scribbling with crayon to cover a large area.
Students next added paint using paint scrapers.
Students explored variations of green by adding blue, yellow, white and black tempera to the green on their paper.
Everyone enjoyed the process of mixing paint and creating texture with the paint scrapers.
The painted paper that the students created will become the medium used for a future project.
