Projects for March and April:
A Snowman Sculpture: Students use their snowman drawing as reference for creating their snowman sculpture. They model their form with Model Magic Clay. When the clay dries, the sculpture is painted with watercolor paints.
An Irish Cottage: students learn how to create a 3-d building. They are instructed to draw a landscape composition with an Irish cottage as the main object. They include hills and cultural items such as pots of gold, leprechauns shamrocks. They remember to follow the rules of perspective, big in front, small in back. They color with blended crayons, using several greens and orange colors.
Spring Baby Animals: Students draw baby animals born in the spring, a lamb, a goose, a bunny, and a chick. They are instructed to follow the rule, everything is drawn from shapes. They are introduced to the art style called Realism and instructed to make their animals look alive by adding the illusion of texture, by drawing feathers and fur. They color with crayons.
