Snake Sculptures

First class of 3rd graders finishing up their snake sculptures inspired by cobra symbols of Ancient Egypt. Just add glitter, gemstone eyes, and ribbon for the tongue for a glimmering art piece ready for the 3rd grade art showing coming this winter!

Golden Scrabs

Well, I figured out what to do with the cool metallic line paintings 1st graders made…turn them into the backgrounds for our golden scarabs! The students created a relief sculpture of an Ancient Egyptian scarab and press it onto a foam core tile. When it hardened, students painted them gold using my favorite Chromatemps paint. Then, we glued the tile onto their line paintings and added a gemstone for a little bling. Looks great!

Turkey Harptoons

The K-2 students are having a blast learning how to draw a turkey from Steve Harpster. Hill View students love when they get to draw a Harptoon in art class, but they can do it at home as well! Here is the Harptoon we watched to learn how to draw a turkey for Thanksgiving…

Here are the first draft turkeys done by 1st grade for their art journals. Impressive!
