Instructional Ideas

  • Use other shapes in the paintings to reflect what you are teaching (leaves, geometric shapes, letters and numbers)
  • Bring other art forms into the project, such as colored pencils or crayons
Classroom Considerations

  • Complexity of the project would be best in an art center or with the help of classroom aides, so kids can concentrate on their work
  • You could use the lesson with older learners as well, with less supervision
Pros

Cons

  • None
