Fourth graders learned about the printmaking process in this lesson. White tempera paint to print leaves on a black background. Colored pencils were used to shade in the color, and tempera paint was used to sponge paint the background.
"As a kinder and project read the book The Dot. A cute story about a little girl who discovers art through a simple series of dot paintings. The students paint their own dot, or not-a-dot, with watercolors.
love these collaborative pieces: could name these "Our Cool Dot" "Our Warm Dot" after reading "The Dot" and giving each student 2 dots of their own (one to decorate with cool colors and one with warm colors)
