I want to start by thanking Mrs. Cole at Coles Little Pups for awarding me the Versatile Blogger award! I am so honoured! You can see who I passed it on to here.
Last week my class worked on some Snowman Art.
My students started by covering a large white paper with modge podge, using a large paintbrush. They covered the modge podge with rectangles of tissue paper. The tissue paper colors we used were light blue, dark blue, and light purple, to create a winter sky effect. The students were told to overlap the pieces of tissue as they arranged them onto their papers.
When their page was filled, they painted modge podge over the entire sheet once more, to give it a shiny effect.
As their papers dried, my students set to work creating snowmen. They used pre-drawn circles which they had to cut out and assemble as the snowman's body. They added details to their snowman using scraps of construction paper.
The finished snowmen were added to the tissue paper covered background. This is how they turned out when finished:
Here they are on display in the Art Room:
