1st Grade
Art Projects for November- December:  

Thanksgiving Project- An Indian Headress:   
Students use symbols used by the Native Americans to design a headdress.  They select their symbols and draw them in the center of their rectangular paper.  They create repeat patterns of geometric designs on the top and bottom of their headdress.  They color with crayons, using the colors the Native Americans.  When the headdress is completed, students color 2 feather shapes and attach them to their drawing.  

Santa's Face- a head and shoulders drawing:  Students learn the rules of proper placement of the facial features and how to draw a head and shoulders composition.  They draw Santa's face, and include the features that are a part of our idea of how he dressed.  The drawing is colored with oil pastels and crayon background.
