Remix Characters

This project the students had some fun with.  They had to choose 2 cartoon characters and mix them together.  At the end of the project we should be able to tell which characters they mixed.  They were not allowed to trace the figures.

Color Wheel

This was a project that my 7th grade class did in one day.  We talked about the colors and separated them out onto a large circle I drew onto my bulletin board.  Each table was assigned a color to look for in magazines.  The students did a great job of following instructions and getting this complete.  After finishing this one which is about 38 inches, I am really wanting to do a larger one for the elementary.

3D sculpture

This was a great 1 day project for 3rd graders.  We started by talking about sculpture and then element of 3d.  I then did a quick demo of how to fold,twist, and glue the construction paper strips to the paper. I have the students the rest of the time to work except the last 5 min.  Those minuets were used for the students to take a walk around and observe the others students work.
They were pretty excited to take these works with them.
I recently found this project on another site and then forgot where I saw it, so to that teacher I am sorry I can not link this to you.

Art Club WIPS

Here are a few WIPs from my 8th grade art club.  Their project is to create a work of art using newspaper as their main medium.
