We studied the artist,
last month for Art in the Schools.
The lesson I designed for the school
(grades Kindergarten - 6th grade)
involved creating a cut paper
Jungle Animals and Plants
inspired by his beautiful paintings.
We used construction paper, marker, and
recycled Wrapping Paper scraps
(from our fall school fundraiser project)
We also just had a school-wide display/exhibit
of some of the Art in the Schools projects
from the past two months.
I love the way this class decided to do the project
as a whole class collage instead of individual projects!
(Henri Rousseau collages
and our Faith Ringgold Paper Quilts --
I'll have more photos of them next!)
I apologize for the quality of the photos,
they were taken in poor hallway lighting
with my phone because I forgot my camera! (ack!)
I love the way the wrapping paper scraps
add fun and unexpected little patterns and colors!
