3rd Grade Polynesian Art

Each 3rd grader created a large watercolor picture of a polynesian scene to decorate the gym for the artist in residence program.  These  pictures were all different and they were all beautiful. The students learned how to block in the picture, create watercolor washes and draw palm trees.

3rd Grade Space Fantasy

This was one of my favorite projects for the school year.  We studied the moon cycle and learned to add shading using different patterns.  As our final project we created this beautiful moonscape using pastel chalks.  Each student used line patterns and choices of color. The final step was to add a moon in one of the phases we had recently learned.
