  • Pussy Willow Painting

    Pussy Willow: Finger Painting/Stamping

    Pussy Willows Pussy WIllow







    I found a great project idea from This Website. I really love to collect Pussy willows outside. They are really soft and remind me of rabbit fur. This is a fun finger print painting project. 

    Tools needed:

    Any colored paper except white.

    Brown Marker, brown paint, white or silver paint.



    1. You may add a vase if you would like. If you do draw the vase first. A rectangle shape will work fine for an easy shape.

    2. Draw three or four horizontal (up and down) lines for the stalks of the pussy willows with a brown marker. Some of them may crisscross at the top like mine did in the picture above. Add little lines coming out of the stalk for where the pussy willows will be added. Do not put them all of the way to the bottom of the stalks.

    3. Dip one finger into brown paint and stamp the end of each little line you drew. This could take a lot of dipping in the paint. I needed to get new paint about every three stamps. Let the paint dry completely. 

    4. Dip one finger into the white or silver paint and stamp it right on top of the finger prints you already made. Let dry completely. 

    Masterpiece complete!

    Here is a nice pussy willow song you can play while you paint. Click Here

  • Letter Creature

    Letter Creature: 


    I found a really fun Letter project on this website: Creative Letter Drawing: Click Here

    Click Here to watch/read the book- Louise Loves Art by Kelly Light

    -Louise creates her greatest masterpiece (a drawing of her cat) but then her little brother cuts it up and makes it into something else (his greatest masterpiece).

    Draw the first letter of your name on a paper. Make it big so it fills the page. Then think of an animal or bug that starts with that letter. Turn your letter into the animal by adding legs, wings or what it needs to become your animal. To get ideas look at the website above. I had a first grade student Bella, turn her B into a Bird. I think it looks great. Send me a picture of your letter creature and I wll upload it to the student gallery page.

    Building with Shapes

    This is another cut paper art activity. This time the 6th grade students used colored construction paper to create a streetscape. I love som...

    Shapes are everywhere! There are two kinds of shapes; geometric and organic. Look at the examples: Click Here

    Make your own houses and building out of shapes. If you do not have construction paper you can always use magazines, newspapers or wrapping paper. Follow directions from this site: Click Here

    I really like that book. Did you? What color shoes do you want Pete the cat to wear in your art project?

    Go to this website to get step by step directions on how to make your own Pete the cat. Click Here

    If you do not have paint, you can use any other tools to color it in such as crayons or colored pencils.

  • Line and Pattern Rooster and Turtle

    Posted by Sasha Rigas on 4/13/2020

    First Graders: Create your very own creative lines and patterns. Practice making some in the boxes provided on the workseet. With crayons draw your patterns on the rooster and turtle. You may also use any of the patterns that are provided. If you have watercolor crayonos, that would be an excellent paint to fill in the rest of your turtle and rooster. You can paint right over crayon with watercolor paints. Feel free to cut them out and glue them to another paper so the rooster and turtle are now together on one paper. You could add details to make a ground, trees and other plants, or anything else you would like to see outside with them.  Click on the link below for the pdf to print. Have fun and don't forget to send me a picture.
