3rd Grade
Projects for November:

A Leaf Collage composition
:  Students learn about the art style called a collage.  They are taught the warm color combinations used for fall themed compositions. Students draw 4 realistic leaf shapes and cut them out to  create 4 leaf tracers.  They use the tracers to overlay the forms onto yellow construction paper.  They color the leaves by dusting the tracer shapes with several warm shades of colored drawing chalk

An Owl Drawing:  Students use reference photos of an owl to draw the animal in the art style called Realism.  They draw their owl onto black construction paper.  They color their owl matching the real colors found in the bird, using oil pastels using lines and dashes to capture the texture of the owls feathers.
