We did a Square 1 Art fundraiser for PTO at one of my schools this winter. Each grade participated, it was a huge success! 2nd grade all did owls. First we did a directed drawing in oil pastel. The students had to show texture and repetition with the feathers. Then they used liquid watercolor to paint the owls. I love how bright and colorful they turned out! A few older students chose to do owls as well, I let 4th and 5th choose their subject matter for their Square 1 project.
Thanks to materalbum for my inspiration!
