The 1st graders at my school have been writing poetry about snowmen. Those were the days, right? Ah, the bliss of being in 1st grade.
So, because they finish projects so quickly, I have created a snowman unit. I know, genius. We are going to do 3 different artworks, each learning different techniques and art concepts, each about snowmen.
Here is the first: We talked about line, crayon resist, and watercolor technique. I have found it really makes a difference to use nice, watercolor paper. They turned out so great.
