Getting Ready For Our Scarecrow Festival

First graders are busy finishing up their colorful scarecrow portraits and 3-D paper pumpkins for a school art show. These scarecrows are delightful. As a whole group, students learned to draw a scarecrow, step by step during a guided drawing lesson. Its amazing to see what 6 year olds CAN do! Childrens art is the best in my opinion.

Today we used watercolor paint to finish the background. Awesome. Students then learned how to transform flat, 2-D paper into a 3-D pumpkin! Oh, they came out GREAT! Didn't have the camera at work today so you'll have to wait and see the finished display next week!

Remember, if you want to know more about any of my art projects, just let me know. I'd love to share what I have.
