Elementary Art Projects for kindergarten - 6th grades. Come, look around, and be inspired. Use these art lessons, some are original, some are borrowed. Thank you, to all art teachers who have so generously offered their art ideas. You have helped my students love art.
We printed the tail feathers with 2 x 4 pieces of matt board and tempera paint (black, orange, white, brown), poured onto a paper plate. Two children would share the paper plate of paint.
Students traced a turkey pattern on black paper, the glued it over the dry tail feathers. They would cut 3 x 6 green paper into three long strips and glue those as ground. Then taking three 3 x 3 light brown and/or dark brown papers, students cut these into 4 strips each, which became trees with branches.
First graders produced fall leaves by tearing red, green, and orange 3 x 3 papers into small pieces. These were glued to create mood in their art by selecting a calm day or a windy day.
