4th Grade
Art Projects for November-December:


A Fall Line Drawing:  Students select a fall botanical object, an acorn, a pumpkin, an apple, a pear etc. and draw it on fall colored construction paper.  The background of the composition is created by drawing overlapping fall leaves. The students use the Contour (line) technique.  The drawing is colored with fall colored markers.

Holiday Head and Shoulders Composition:  Students use reference drawings of Thanksgiving participants, pilgrims and Native Americans to design their composition.  They draw a head and shoulders figure drawing stressing the authentic clothing and facial features from their reference.  The drawing is colored with chalk background and oil pastels.
