I found success today with a sub plan that kids found exciting and fun to do, the substitute felt comfortable with, and I could get a grade out of ! Hip, hip, hooray! Leaving behind sub plans via the internet and utilizing artsonia's student upload feature with students completing a simple drawing and taking a well composed photograph of that drawing interacting with something from the human world.

I’m always on the lookout for fun, crafty projects for the kiddos in my life. I love having them around but sometimes it is so nice to just hand them some craft supplies, make sure they understand that they are not to be used on floors or walls or bodies and catch up on your Instagram feed from another room.

animal mosaics
The students will be selecting their animal of choice keeping in mind that they will have their mosaic on a piece of black paper. (animals with brighter colors work better) We will cutting out small pieces of color using magazine paper. What's so cool about using magazine paper is that the students will end up with multiple shades of one color. Another thing that student's will discover that some paper will have words or texture on them and that's okay, it actually will make their animal more interesting.

paul cezanne
First Grade artists looked at the still life paintings of Paul Cezanne. We talked about why artists draw still lives--to practice. And we discussed how artists draw still lives--by looking, observing and finding simple shapes. Each table had an old soup can full of eight different art supplies--brushes, pencils, markers, etc. We then observed. Which object is tallest, shortest, widest, narrowest? What shapes can we find in the pencil? We talked about overlapping. We used lots triangles, rectangles and ovals to draw these.

Teaching portraiture in the art room can be tricky because it doesn’t always engage all students. While some kids love drawing themselves, others loathe the activity. One trick I’ve found for engaging students is to assign portraits as a theme and then allow students to individually respond to that theme. In my room, I call […]

We'll be looking at minerals, crystals, and gems, for our inspiration. We'll be using rulers to draw out our shapes, (which is a challenge in itself), and Crayola watercolors to give our crystals some lively color. We'll be talking about the element of art, VALUE, and how important it is in our pictures. [...]
