Please Don't Eat the Artwork


Kindergarten Owls


The main aim of education should be to produce competent, caring, loving, and lovable people. — Nel Noddings


Last week, Kinders read this book  The Little White Owl. It is a very cute and adjective-filled story about being unique. We talked about owls — the sounds they make, how they move, where they live, and created our very own colorful birds.

We began by drawing our owls using shapes. Kids identified different types of shapes for different body parts. Students noticed that oil pastels are very similar to crayons. We made sure to include shapes and patterns in our owls just like the ones from the story. After completing the drawings, students used watercolors to make their owls colorful.

The last step was to cut out our owls and glue them onto construction paper. Crayons were used to add patterns and backgrounds.

This project was inspired by an art teacher friend of mine – Ms. Gram. She has a great art class book resource blog here:

Unit 1 is coming to a close and this weekend will be spent entering grades. Here is a preview of some of the upcoming projects that students are working on. . .

I will leave you with these parting words: ART IS AWESOME!!!
