We make these clay owl with 1st grade every year.   But this year instead just painting them I tried something new.  First we colored them with construction paper crayon all over there clay owls.  Then we painted them with black tempra paint then we wash it off.

Tooth fairies

Ok. Everyone after my big win the other day I need to give all of you some art stuff. My kinders were learning about teeth and where there are teeth their are Tooth Fairies. Wel started out with two circles and turn them into cones. The little one was the head and the bigger one the body. I used wired for the neck. We taped the wire inside the body and the head. For the wings we used foil and did a rubbing on it to give it some texture. They turned out pretty cool. This was a new project for me so I am still working out some of the kinks. So please stay tune in for more

1st grade owls

I sometime do a owl project with my 1st graders. And I seem to do it different every year. One thing I have been thinking about is that sometime I or we as art teachers don't let the students just be creative. You know we tell them what to draw and how to color it so it looks certain way. While for this I did show them how to draw and color the background. But then it came owl I showed them how to draw them but they could color them anyway they like. They turned out really good. I was very happy with there work.

Throw down update

Well you wouldn't believe the 3rd grade teacher and I both made brownies with bacon in them. I did put up a good fight but I lost. Most people thought mine tasted better but my presentation cost me the win. The people that judge this for us to do this again before the school year is over. Not sure that will happen. Will keep you posted.
