Snow Play Grade 2

A winter wonderland of new snow inspired these playful drawings.  Students first brainstormed ideas for fun in the snow.  They started with a crayoned bank of freshly fallen snow.  Students then took turns posing for gesture drawings.  The figures were filled out to include warm winter clothing:  snowpants,  jackets, boots, hats, scarves and gloves

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.
