Inside: A collection of artwork from an elementary school.
Do you ever just wander around your building and admire the bulletin boards?
That’s what I did last week and was just blown away by some of the beautiful art I saw.
Have a look!
I love this cat! It’s very Dr. Seuss-like. I think the method used here is pretty obvious, and in case you can’t tell, the primary-age artist used pastels.
These little bunnies were done in my class. The students used white tempera paint and sponges to create these. While the paint was still wet they used plastic forks around the edges of the bunny to pull out the fur. When the paint was dry they added the extra details.
This beautiful lion was also painted by a primary student. They used tempera paints. I love the way they added different colours for the mane. And the bright blue background is such an awesome choice!
The following artworks were all created by intermediate students
This first one is a self portrait and was made using a styrofoam print.
I just love the bear and wolf. The trees and background were painted (I believe painters tape was used to outline the trees) and then old music sheets were used for the animal bodies!
Aren’t these perspective paintings cool? They were pre-drawn and then painted with watercolours.
I love the colours and designs in this owl. I’m not sure if it was done in pastels or crayon, but either way it’s beautiful.
These Ted Harrison-style paintings are my absolute favourites! I have several Harrison prints in my home and I never get tired of the vibrant colours.
Sadly, Mr. Harrison died a month ago, here in Victoria. He’ll be missed but not forgotten.
