Things we do in the art room!
LOVE these fire trucks! They especially look wonderful as a group. You must have been a very popular teacher in the eyes of the little boys (and girls)that got to create these. ;)
Love Love Love these firetrucks! What a fantastic lesson and I just adore the results!
Thanks!! Girls I have my little ones use a q-tip dipped in paint and only give them one color at a time. They give their art a great line quality I can't seem to get them to create with a brush.
hey Mrs.Bandstra You are a great art teacher!! As I looked at these paintings I thought of how much determination you had for us so we could make such beautiful paintings!!!! Thanks for being the best!
By the way I remember when I drew a firetruck about 4 years ago! :)
Did you read them a story at all to go along with this? Looking for a book to tie it with...
I usually read the "The Fire Cat" to them. I read the first chapter then paint the black lines. Put them on the drying rack. Then during the next class we paint the red and I read the rest of the book to them. I try to do this project during fire prevention week at school. They are so excited when the fire trucks pull up out side the school. http://www.amazon.com/Fire-Cat-Can-Read-Book/dp/0064440389
