We began by creating a night landscape with black and gray paper. Next we created a snowman and winter trees. Then the snowman and trees were traced and cut from black paper to create a shadow or the negative space.
Finally the whole landscape with winter trees and snowman were glued onto a large white paper with the negative space create with the black trees and snowman. Thanks to Oak Hill Elementary for sharing this idea here on Artsonia.com.
This quarter I started to create instructional videos to go along with some of my lessons. I play them for each class after we go over the lesson learning objectives. These videos give me a chance to get the room set up while the students watch. It also gives each of my three classes the exact same instruction. I have included my instructional video for this lesson below.
