Back to School Collaborative Hand Art

School has officially been in session for a month and these finally made it up on the walls last week!


  The first day of art shouldn't just be spent going over rules and procedures, we have to have a little art making too! I've started the last two years with this collaborative art piece as a great way to check in on skills and bring us together as a building.


 Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders used construction paper crayons and a color of their choice. They were prompted to do different lines, patterns, and simple pictures. Really anything but scribbling. 3rd and 4th graders had a little more direction and did Zentangle like designs and if they had time added colored pencil. The use of colored pencil was a change from last year but I am really happy about it, they look amazing! 3rd and 4th didn't finish these in one class, they had 20 minutes of the next class to work as well.


Check out this post from when I did this project with my last district for other examples of how to put them together...
