Hi Art Scholars,
Art is so much more than creating something "right" or perfect. Art is about trying to create and enjoying the process. This amazing story shares the journey of one little boy as he searches for his joy in creating art. Please enjoy the story Ish by Peter Reynolds.
Now, let’s be inspired to draw Ish-ly. Get out your pastels (or crayons) and watercolors. Using loose lines and free shapes draw something Ish-ly or click the link below to draw a simple vase drawing with Ms. Rees.
Happy Wednesday Art Scholars,
I've got a fun new art adventure for you today. We are going to listen to one of my favorite books (read by the author) and then draw the character. First, let's listen to David McKee read his book Elmer
Now we are going to draw an Elephant like Elmer.
Now that you have drawn an elephant be inspired. Use the last page of the story to create your own amazing Elmer Day Parade elephant. Please share your creations on twitter @VAPA_CVESD.
No paint at home? You can use markers or food coloring as paint for your art making. No paint brush? Try a cotton swab, a sponge, or some old make-up brushes. If you are out of paper, maybe use the back of a box or the inside of an old envelope. Think creatively! Check out the link below to see how.
Now, it's your turn to make some art. When you are finished, please go to flip grid to share your wonderful art with us.
Hey Art Scholars,
We have a great lesson for you today by Ms. Klein. Take a look at the video and activity below.
Please watch this video from CVESD VAPA department (4 minutes).
Use recycled materials like junk mail, newspapers, and magazines to create an animal themed collage.
Choose an animal that you would like to create. Look for interesting colors that might appear in your recycled papers. Either sketch out the body parts on to your recycled papers, or just start cutting. Create your main body first and then add details like eyes and ears. Add a habitat in the background.
Materials: junk mail, newspaper, magazines, glue, scissors, background paper.

Hello Art Scholars,
This week your art activity is created so you can work on it yourself or you can create as a family. There is no wrong way to do this lesson as long as you try your best. Explore your creativity and enjoy.
Art gives children an outlet to express themselves and an activity in which they can create things that they are proud of. When children create and share their art, they develop self-esteem from experiencing opportunities to make something unique, expressing their feelings and imagination, and receiving praise and critique from those around them.
