We are working on identifying warm and cool colors and reviewing directional line; horizontal, vertical and diagonal. We began by using a ruler and directional lines to design our own skyscraper on tall white paper. Next we traced our drawing with black marker. We then used warm or cool colors to paint a second paper practicing using watercolor washes. The last step was to cut out the skyscraper drawing and glue onto the painted paper. I found this lesson idea at http://www.deepspacesparkle.com and changed it slightly to fit our current learning objectives. My instructional video can be found below. The handout for skyscraper ideas can be found here.
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
