FINALLY IT HAS ARRIVED!
The last of the "winter" projects are here! Okay, so these aren't all winter but they were inspired by a very wintery subject of snow globes!
This one made it into the YAM Art Show at the Portage County Public Library!
Day 1: Watched this awesome pixar short on YouTube featuring a snow globe! Viewed images of all different snow globes to talk about what makes a snow globe a snow globe (content, structure, see-through, etc.) and started a planning sheet. My planning sheets are really simple, mostly just boxes with reminders of what things they need to include and they can either sketch or write. If I needed them to develop an idea more I have them draw it on the blank back. I get A LOT of moans and groans about planning sheets (less now that it's the end of the school year, they are used to it!) but I see more well thought out projects almost very time I use them...
Day 2: Traced an ice cream pail lid to get the perfect circle and size and started drawing. Some started coloring.
Day 3: Talked about how to achieve the glare on the glass and about the see-through-ness of the the globe. Continued drawing and coloring.
Day 4: Finished coloring and assembled. Add snow if desired, we used Q-tips and white tempera.
Late, independent, finishers almost all forgot the glare = FRUSTRATION!
Also, I am well aware some of these look more like crystal balls, I
will might require a pile of snow at least on the bottom of the globe next time, maybe out of some cool 3D material!? Still thinking!
|I think he has done turtles on EVERY project somehow :)|
I never had a chance to hang these at Kennedy before we had more things to hang that weren't winter!
