Me in My Snow Clothes
by Grade 1. These were drawn in waterproof black marker, after a lesson in drawing the human body, all bundled up in snow gear. They painted them with tempera paint, with a focus on using small amounts of paint at a time and blending their own colors.
Arts from Antiquity! 3rd graders studied artifacts from Ancient Egypt, then imagined themselves as a member of Egyptian society, 4000 - 5000 years ago. They colored the drawings with crayon, crackled the picture by scrunching it into a ball, then dipped it into a bath of black watercolor to make it look aged. They touched it up with a bit of precious gold paint for luster.
