ART From Ally

As an art teacher I get many gifts from students at the end of the year from candles to chocolate to gift cards and I appreciate all of them. This year one of my delightful second grade students created this framed zentangled ART. From one artist to another - thank you Ally. Keep making art all summer - I know you will!

Printed Poinsettias

Second graders created beautiful printed poinsettias before the holidays and here's how they did it. First they took soft chalk pastel and created an abstract colored background using the side of the chalk and then blended it with a tissue.

Next they used a brush and tempera paint to paint a few circles then used leaf shaped sponges to print their leaves here...


and here.

Overlapping, good composition and many colors were used to complete these beautiful pieces.
