I wanted the students to learn that they can control where their paint spreads, by literally making little â€śwallsâ€ť of crayon. This colorful painting was made by Lara, a talented 1st grader.
2. After each student wrote their letters, they traced them with a crayon. I like the Crayola Twistables as they donâ€™t get as dull as the regular kind. The grid lines were traced also.
3. Each student was given a small brush and a variety of liquid watercolors. I asked them to change color often and see how neatly they could fill in each rectangle. Any accidental bleeding though, I think just ads charm to the artwork. http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/search/label/1st%20grade?updated-max=2010-09-28T22:04:00-07:00&max-results=20
