Adaptive Art Hearts. I have very small Adaptive Art classes this year. In one class I have only 3 students! All the students are very young, non verbal and my goal right now is to work on getting everyone to grasp their tools. The heart projects shown here are from this small class. This project was inspired by Mrs. Picassos Art Room blog post "Marble Painted Hearts." I switched it up quite a bit though...

Have you ever done Zentangles with your students? I googled searched them a lot this summer and really wanted to try it with my 5th graders. I decided to make it the beginning of the year lesson and use them for their Square 1 Art work. They turned out great and the students loved making them! I think there is a lot of Zentangling happening in homes right now! :)
We started the lesson by staining the Square 1 Art paper they provided. We ripped tissue paper up and placed pieces onto wet paper, then painted more paper over the top. We talked a lot about color mixing during this part of the process.When the paper dried we peeled the tissue paper off and disgarded it.
Square 1 Art Lesson. I started the school year off with Square 1 Art lessons because my due date with them was coming up pretty quick. For 1st grade, I tried Deep Space Sparkle's "Cities at Night" lesson. Thank you Deep Space Sparkle! They turned out great... and was a very good beginning of the year project as it allowed me to assess cutting and gluing skills.
