Fun project for kindergarten! These were so cute hanging in the hallways during conference time, there were a lot of positive comments made by parents.
I took the student's picture while they held a large paint brush and told them to pretend they were painting a large picture - they were in front of my SMARTboard. I then gave each child a 6x8" white paper and told them they could create anything they wanted, I reminded them that they were artists! Using tongue depressors, I glued three together onto a black piece of paper in an A-frame to create an easel. The students glued their artwork on top of the easel and I cut out each student's picture and glued it to the paper to make it look like the they were actually painting their own large canvas. Enjoy!
Enjoy an elementary art teacher's journey through a winding, colorful river full of whimsical, fun, educational and awe-inspiring projects...some my own, some I have found, some I have altered... feel free to use them in your classroom!
