My students LOVED this lesson. Perspective is part magic and part math and for creative types like me, there are specific rules that really work. My students discovered these as we worked through the lesson. About half of my fifth grade class finished this lesson in three, 50-minute sessions. The other half need an additional 30 minutes to finish.
It's Art Day!: Monet's Pond. A great project even for students with fine motor challenges and other special learning needs. Get all the directions at: http://itisartday.blogspot.com/2015/02/kindergarten-reflection-collage.html
Fall has arrived! Why not highlight it with an Aboriginal Art project? The Aboriginal people often paint kangaroos, snakes, lizards and lots of symbols. Our theme will be a Fall Leaf. This is a great way to work with warm and cool colours. This very complete project helps you to initiate your students into Aboriginal Art. The students will be proud of all of their dots and surprised at their results.
