'lil artists

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!

    Such a great idea! I love incorporating photographs of students into their artwork. I did it a lot when I was a middle school teacher, but this inspires me to test it out next year with the wee ones I now teach! Thanks for sharing!
