Pattern Zebras

Kindergarten students learned about shape, pattern and texture in this lesson.  They also worked on the fine motor skill of cutting and gluing.  Check out their beautiful zebras below! 

Perspective tulip fields

Fifth grade students learned how to show distance in a work of art by creating a perspective drawing. They looked at examples of real tulip fields in the Netherlands to get some ideas.  Students used a horizon line and vanishing point in their one-point perspective drawings to create these beautiful tulip fields.

I found the idea for this lesson on a fellow art teachers blog:  My Adventures in Positive Space
