I must warn you with a disclaimer - I am not a messy person. I don't like getting messy or dirty or messy & dirty. That being said I am learning to overcome my fear. So on Friday we dove headfirst into Owl art. (The Friday before I made crockpot applesauce with them)
|Here are some of my students using a apple peeler, corer, slicer to get the apples ready for the applesauce.|
|We began with black paper because owls are nocturnal.|
|Then the students added a branch premade by my fabulous student teacher.|
|This owl looks like it is either landing or taking off!|
|I love the colors used in this owl.|
|Look at the eyes - according to the artist "he's looking for food"|
I got this idea from a FANTASTIC website Mrs. Brown's Art Class.
I think I am learning to get messy in order to help my students be creative. In two week we are launching Pumpkinpalloza! Wish me luck!
