Third and Fourth Grade G-Town artists are wrapping up their clay projects and are excited to show them off!
Third graders created coil pots and turned them into bird nests by squeezing clay through a garlic press; they loved creating the squiggly looking nest tops.
They created colorful birds, eggs, and baby birds using Model Magic. What child doesn’t love a nest full of birds?!
Fourth Graders created fun little face pinch pots, and added awesome felt hats. Each pinch pot has such character – every one of them makes me smile!
Inspiration for this project is from Fem Manuals blog – check out their darling face pots with hats too!
Sometimes, my third grade artists have discovered, we make art just for FUN. Turning themselves into silly elves was just plain….fun, with a little creative problem solving thrown in as they figured out how to make elf-inspired clothing.
This project was inspired by Pinterest! See more at “Art With Mrs. Chiddo” (scroll down to see their sweet first grade elves!)
Third grade artists are finishing up their study of Louisiana artist George Rodrigue, creator of Blue Dog. They drew awesome dogs using oil pastels, and placed their dog on a background inspired by Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night.
