Hen and Chick Grade 2

The second grade study of Grant Wood culminated in this mixed media composition.  Students watched the video “Dropping in on Grant Wood” to learn about his life and work.  They used thick markers to draw barn boards and woodgrain.  The beak, crown, waddle and chick were cut from colored paper.  Fine point colored markers were used for the details on the hen.  Cut out eggs were glued to a straw nest.

Grant Wood Farms

Grant Wood’s farms inspired this craypas resist landscape.  Craypas were used to create  patterns suggesting crops.  Liquid watercolors were mixed to achieve a variety of greens to paint over the patterns.  Farm buildings, ponds, and a vibrant sky complete the composition.
