This line project was right in time for the season.
After reviewing several line styles we worked on these wonderful Deer!
1. Draw a oval. I used tracers and asked the students to place it towards the bottom.
2. Draw the ears. I talk about them as footballs. I explain to draw a curved line on top and a curved line on the bottom.
3. Draw the face. Eyes and nose are essential. I had many students add more then that.
4. Draw two lines from the head. They can do loop lines, curved, zig zag, and so on.

5. Add more 'fun' lines off from the horn. I found asking for a number (10 lines) created the best kindergarten art.
6. Color in the lines and the deer head. Students can add 'extras' like snow flakes to the background.

Tint Painting

Tint Painting

3rd grade students created a monochromatic collage and then painted their work creating tints.


Snowflakes at Home
My Kiddo's at home are artist too! Here is a work of art anyone can do at home. I used oil pastels to make the snowflakes. Food coloring and water was painted over the drawing. I love my little boys art!

Trading Cards!

Rogers Elementary second grade students traded cards with the second grade from Leah Schultz Art class, at Twin Lakes Elementary, in Elk River, MN. We had our second grade work on the human form each in our own way. It was fun to see what the other school created. It started a conversation between our schools as well. Our students were able to ask Twin Lake students how they made their art. Each student at both schools received a work of art from their 'art pal'.
