Last Week at Art Adventures, we started our 2 part Halloween Haunted 3D Scene with pumpkin patch sculptures! We sculpted spheres and coils & used our drop-dye technique of “One Drop, Stop!” 🛑
This week, we shop, arrange & build our spooky halloween scene with spiders and tombstones and ghosts, oh my!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEK!!
SKETCHBOOK COVER DESIGNS-
We record our progress with lines, shapes and pictures throughout the semester in our sketchbooks. Today we decorated them by “shopping” for colors we liked and patterns/ textures that pleased us. We made choices about what went first, then overlapped: “Larger first/smaller last.”
Cutting made simple:
Step 1: Act like you’re shaking someone’s hand.
Step 2: Thumb in small hole (top.)Fingers in large hole (bottom.)
Step 3: Alligator eats AWAY from you!
Step 4: “Open shut them” – a song we sing. (Or The alligator is REALLY hungry.)Press forward.
Adult: hold the (thin) piece of paper -one hand on each side.
(Watch your fingers!)
Pull apart a bit to make it taught. This helps them be more successful!
Gluing made simple:
(with a brush or a gluestick):
1: take your paper you want to attach.
2: Turn it over.
3: Go around the edges.
4: “Cris-Cross” in the center.
5: Turn it over and attach.
Don’t worry that they turn their scissors “upside-down.” They haven’t stretched their “rotation” muscles yet.
We’re working on it!
