Whoo-hoo it's Summer!! Well, almost...

Our school has a couple more weeks, but my classes are completed and the room clean-up begins. Like most teachers, I planned a few lessons that never got off the drawing board and into the classroom this year, so I thought I would share some of them in future weeks. Maybe I will use some of them next year -- I haven't decided yet.

This first one was a print lesson where kids would create the portrait plate using either cut or torn paper (in this case, cut).

Prints were pulled using various colors and when the paint dried, details were added using crayons, oil pastels and markers.

I like the idea of children taking the print and then adding on to give it a fanciful quality.
