I took advantage of Groundhog Day and the groundhog to lead into the lesson on elements of art: light, shade, and shadow.
The students used flashlights to have their silhouette drawn. The the students began to draw all kinds of things that represent themselves....all things they like to do, eat, go, or just plain like.
The art work is not finished but here are a few photos of some of their work in progress.
All of the photos are of some of my 2nd graders.
Can you tell just how much fun these kiddos were having? They were totally engrossed in what they were doing and these pieces of art are turning out to be some fabulous works.
Be sure to check back to see how wonderful these pieces of art turn out.
