Cars, Fish & A Castle Animation Project



Cars, Fish and Castle

My animation project is now up on You Tube. I think students will find this a stepping off point into making their own simple animations. I am making a Lesson Plan Package for this.

Wolfe School Art Projects

This is the week there's a plan for a display to go up at the VSB main offices entrance way profiling these K-1's self portraits from a project from last spring. Mrs. G handed out mirrors and pastels. I did a demo of a drawing to show them how I would make a self portrait. Then off they went with great enthusiasm to create their portraits. It's not up yet but here's a photo of the work laid down in a row in my apartment hallway. I invested about ten dollars on a package of coloured paper card stock to make a background which I hope shows the art off in a positive way.

Other projects we did:

  • Watercolour landscapes
  • Painted paper collage
  • Fairy Tale characters from the Three Little Pigs and Cinderella
  • Prints for Valentine cards using thin foam sheets
We had five 90 minute sessions to do all this and as I write this down I realize it was a lot!
