Winter Prints

The blizzard of the century inspired these snowy scenes.  Third graders spent time drawing local wildlife which were then incorporated into a landscape.  Students included textured pine trees and a foreground, middle ground and background.  The drawings were taped to styrofoam printing plates.  Lines were traced with a blunt pencil.  Printing with brayers and printing ink was a new experience for the students.

Miniature Monet Landscapes

Fourth graders painted these amazing landscapes with a limited palette of magenta, turquoise, white, and yellow acrylics.  A touch of phthalo green was allowed.  The tiny canvases, easels, and brushes inspired their best effort!
