Paint Monsters!!!

1st Graders have been going monster crazy! First the wild things came to visit, now we're being attacked by paint monsters! Students used watered-down tempera paint to choose their monster colors, and we used straws to blow the colors across the paper instead of a brush! Each piece is unique, and the addition of construction paper collage pieces adds personality! I hope you enjoy them as much as the kids loved making them!

Last OP Art of the Year!

Our 3rd graders have been working hard on their OP art circle projects, I was so impressed I took lots of pictures of them! We began by making a grid, then added about four circles that will pop out at you and students chose their alternating colors themselves. I was really impressed how quickly everyone caught on and look at the great results!
