Second grader’s food collage includes a carrot, egg and celery.
Leder du efter en engagerende collage projekt? Try this ‘feast on a plate’ felt food collage project from San Diego’sNye Børnenes Museum.
I recently toured the Museum’s new food-themed exhibitFEAST: The Art of Playing with Your Food. I found a group of children at an art-making station, happily creating their own collage feasts out of colorful cut felt. I saw felt eggs, bacon, celery, blueberries, and mini-waffles all arranged and glued to paper plates.
Third grader’s plate includes bacon and mini-waffles created from felt and other fabric scraps.
Food sculptures made by rolling fabric and wrapping with yarn (lærer eksempel).
This would be a fabulous idea for a Thanksgiving feast art project!
Uanset om du er en forælder eller en lærer, Sørg for at tjekke de Nye Børnenes Museumwhen you visit San Diego. The museum offers art-making activities for children EVERY DAY. I wrote more about the museumi dette indlæg og dette indlæg.
I never tried face paint…until this Halloween. I’d seen face painters at festivals creating beautiful designs. Could I do that?
Way back in March, I received a big swag bag of sample art supplies from Col Art. Included were two types of Snazaroo face paint. I tested them out on some kids for Halloween.
Første op: Snazaroo face paint sticksSnazaroo Face Painting Sticks. There six colors in the pack. They feel a bit like oil pastels. They are ready to use right out of the package – no water required. You need to warm these in your hand to get them to glide over the skin. I used them to dress up three boys – they were happy with the results. They were quick and easy to use, and you can decorate a lot of faces quickly.
You cannot get a fine line with these paint sticks. They are good for quick, simple stripes of color. I think they would be great for a class play or birthday party.
The boys got quick face paint with Snazaroo face paint sticks. Their sister wears a butterfly painted with Snazaroo cream face paint and face paint sticks.
Next I tested out the cream face paint in theSnazaroo Face Paint Butterfly Mini Kit. These paints need to be applied with a dampened sponge or brush (included in the kit). I loved these face paints – the colors were rich and they glided over the face. I painted a quick butterfly on a girls face. I like the enclosed sponge, but I wasn’t wild about the brush. Bring your own eye liner make up brush or get theSnazaroo Face Painting Brushesto make finer lines.
I layered the face paint sticks over the cream paint. It looked great, the little girl was happy with her results.
If I were going to paint faces at a festival, I would go with the cream face paint. I think I could get beautiful, elegant results with a little practice.
P. loves her butterfly, painted with Snazaroo cream face paint.
Den. is the fiercest kindergartener ever! He is wearing the Snazaroo face paint sticks.
How do you remove face paint? My online research says try tepid water and baby shampoo. Gently wash the face – do not scrub! You could also try baby oil on a cotton ball.
Thanks to Col Art for providing the Snazaroo face paints. You made a bunch of kids happy on Halloween! I will definitely use these again.
Imagine a warm fall day in the mountains. Now imagine a bunch of art teachers walking among the trees and gathering leaves, acorns, dried grasses, and branches. That describes our Tree Huggers outdoor art workshop offered atCAEASouthern Area Conference, held amidst the pines at Idyllwild, Californien.
Our sculptures were inspired by theTree Hugger Projectby Agnieszka Gradzik and Wiktor Szostalo. Tree Hugger Project installations feature large-scale figures created from branches and vines gathered on site. Copenhagen, St. Louis and New York City have had Tree Hugger Project installations.
Workshop participants created their own tree huggers using gathered cones, grasses, and branches. The instructor provided corn husks and raffia to bind the figures.
When doing this project with children, you may want to let them gather for a set amount of time. Just in case, you may want to have extra branches and leaves on hand.
Art teachers had a great time making these sculptures. Imagine how Tree Huggers would look in your town, created from your own regional (and seasonal) gathered materials.
Thanks to our instructor, Dr. Kenneth Sakatani, for leading the Tree Hugger workshop at CAEA Southern Area Conference.
If you are looking for a creative way to integrate art and text, consider the iPad appType Drawing. I learned how to use this app in just a few minutes at the iPad workshop at the CAEA Southern Area conference.
I started out by finding an image of a Garibaldi fish on Google. I saved it to my iPad camera roll. Next I opened the Type Drawing app and opened the fish photo. To create an image, I selected text (I chose ‘fin’, ‘gill’, ‘tail’ etc.) and traced my finger on the screen. Look carefully – all the lines are composed of words!
I matched the text colors to the fish using the eyedropper tool. I played around with the background color too.
Here is a piece of middle school artwork shared by our instructor, art teacher Lyn Gardner.

Type Drawing is not a free app, but it is a nice, easy to use typographic art tool.

How do artists create an illusion of depth in their art? Muralists know how. Our fourth graders are creating a mural of the kelp forest habitat. At øve, we picked two items from the kelp forest – giant kelp and garibaldi (the California state marine fish) – and drew each one three times.
We started out by defining the foreground, middle ground and background. Next we talked about:
*placering (objects placed lower on the page appear closer) *Size (larger objects appear closer) *Overlap *Warm and cool colors (warm colors come forward and cool colors recede) *Value (lighter objects appear further away)
The students then viewed their completed sketches from a distance. They were happy to see the illusion if depth in their sketches.
Nice work! I think they are ready to paint the mural….
