ART WITH MS K

Vibrant Villages

This Cassie Stephens inspired project  was a huge hit with 4th graders! We began by sketching houses. We talked about variety, geometric shapes, repetition, and contrast.

For their final draft, students chose 10-15 houses to draw onto painting paper. They traced over their lines with black crayon and colored in the houses with Crayola Twistables. Next, we used magenta, yellow, and turquoise liquid watercolors. Painting over the houses colored with crayons created a resist effect.

The colors mixed together to make a beautiful tie-dye rainbow. Kids got to sprinkle salt too which created a lovely texture.
