This past week I taught art camp with my 3rd - 5th grade students. The morning session was Painting and Printmaking and the afternoon session was 3-D Art. I used a lot of ideas from my fellow bloggers. A big thanks to http://plbrown.blogspot.com/, http://barbarasthoughtoftheday.blogspot.com/, http://elementaryartroom.blogspot.com/, http://sleepyheaddesignsstudio.blogspot.com/, and http://mrsmanzellastudentartgallery.blogspot.com/ for ideas and inspiration!!!
Here are a couple of pieces completed during camp. Check out my school blog for more pictures.... http://dundeeart.blogspot.com/
Landscape of the courtyard at the high school. Water-soluble oil pastels, watercolors and gouache.
Paintings inspired by Wayne Thiebaud. We used acrylic and modeling paste.
Group Mural inspired by circle painting.
Crayola air dray clay. Unfortunatly a lot of the sculptures broke. Has anyone else ever had trouble with this kid of clay?
Wacky sculptures with model magic and wire (a Dick Blick lesson). I never realized how well the primary colored model magic mixes. I wish it wasn't so expensive.
This coming week I will be doing the same classes but with 6th-8th grade. I hope to share their projects soon.
