School wide collaborative project: Reaching for the Stars
I wanted to start the school year with a collaborative collage mural to give the students a sense of teamwork and unity for the start of the school year. It also helped me as a first time art teacher starting out with one project using simple supplies. I adore how this turned out! I plan on leaving it up the entire school year.
We started with a google slide show that introduced me as a teacher since I am new to the school and went over the class rules. Then I briefly went over each of the elements of art.
Materials: 6X18 drawing paper, markers, rulers
Trace your hand and arm to fill the whole paper
Outline in black marker
Divided into 7 sections with ruler
Draw a different pattern based on the Elements of Art in each section
Color in with markers
Cut out when approved by Mrs Hooper
- Early finishers can cut out gold stars
Go over how I want the entire paper inside arm covered unless there are defined white shapes.
Thanks to Jamestown Elementary Art for the inspiration!
