Van Gogh's Sunflowers K.thru 2nd

Van Gogh's sunflowers by
Kinder kiddos, 1st and 2nd grade.

We used crayons and watercolors to complete our sunflower project.

Perhaps this is what Van Gogh's work would have looked like if he used daisies.

1st grade
I love this one. He decided to paint a glass vase version.

Van Gogh's Sunflower by Pre K.

Van Gogh's Sunflowers.
By my Pre-K. Class

A simple paper project
And a little help from my scissors...
We made this project from painted scrap paper and scrapbook paper.
I introduced the layering technique.

I shared a picture of Van Gogh and a poster of his sunflower painting.
Keep in mind a few can barley write their name.
I think they did a fantastic Job.

I love the placement of leaves and layered petals.
Great Job Loyd!

Hippo Layering Project


I introduced this Hippo project to my Kindergartners. They loved it!
Of course kinder kiddos love just about anything when it comes to creating art and doodling with crafts.
This was our 1st intro to art. Thanks to Pikaland for the idea:). Who knew yellow and blue made green. My Kinders didn't. That alone made their day!
Not knowing what their scissor skills would be, I pre-cut all the small pieces to the Hippo. I then made templates of the hippo body, head and mouth for the kids to trace. Next I had them place the pieces where they would go. Then start gluing.

We added the details
and finished with Mod podge gloss from bottom to top of water line.

This Hippo above is from a 1st grader.
She used her layering and foreground/background skills well. Notice the fish.
I love the the music notes!
