October 15-16 was our 75th Kansas Art Educator Assciation conference. I just had to come home and try this project with my third graders.
Sondra H. does a Happy Birthday _____ theme with each school during the year. This past year she used Salvidor Dali as her theme artist. She had cool projects and books that really were fun. But my favorite was this one--
I gave them 3-4 minutes for each drawing, but that is really just an estatmate, I watched them to see how much they got done and warned them about 30 seconds before we stopped to trade. We all really had fun with this assignment. It was totally creative and fun. I told them now that we have done it once the next time will be even better! So some day when we don't anything too much to do we can do it again, or even a sub could lead this and do it with them!
