Elementary art ideas for those who love art & children
Friday, January 18, 2013
I've done this project several different ways over the years but once again changed it up this year. I asked the students to follow the color wheel around when doing their crayon rubbing over the texture plates--making sure to overlap each color in order to achieve the intermediate colors. I base this project on actual and implied textures but now it's became a color wheel project too. The background was done with watercolor markers. At the end we added glitter for texture-I've also done foil in the past.
We also checked out several works of art by Jim Dine.
