I need to start bringing my camera to ACCESS class on Mondays (the only time I get the "art on a cart" experience to travel to other classrooms :)) These kids create such wonderful art and I need to get more documentation of that! This year we have done a lot of "arts-periments" where students use everyday objects to paint or print with. I wanted to share with you two that went very well.
These shamrocks were printed with cut bell peppers! It was so simple! We then made shamrock sun-catchers with tissue paper and glue. Students took those home before I got to take a picture. My daughters made a couple, as well so I can post theirs.
These spring flowers (please don't judge that I am already pulling out spring projects in early March....or even February 29th if I am completely honest...I am just over the winter blues!) were created by stamping with cut celery hearts. Students also used their thumbs to stamp leaves onto their stems.
I am a K - 5th grade art teacher at Wilson Creek Elementary and Anna McDonald School in Manhattan, IL. I am also a mother of two little girls (who share my love of art)!
