Tempera Paint, Collage, Sharpie, Watercolor Pencil, Glitter Glue
DAY1: Tempera Paint Background - We discussed color: primary, secondary, analogous, tints.
Students selected 2 colors they wished to use & created an over all patter in tempera paint.
DAY2: Collage bugs using pattern paper & outlined in Sharpie.
DAY3: Complete bugs/Sharpie, draw spider web using watercolor pencils, and glitter glue accents in the same color as their paint.
This didn't turn out exactly like how I had pictured it in my mind, but the kids really did enjoy it. I was thinking it would be a bit more sophisticated & less cartoonish. Oh well, they are still bright & attractive..and will look great in the art show!
