Wintery projects from this month

Here are a few of the holiday/ winter activities we had going on recently. I still have remote students getting asynchronous lessons from me as well as in person students, and I am trying to have everyone do the same lesson as much as possible. I am cleaning tables, stools and supplies between classes- whew! It has been a lot and I'm proud of all my little artists.

Northern lights monoprint - a fancy effect from simple markers, water, and a plastic baggie:

Some of my fifth graders are finally getting to finish the potholder weaving we started last March just as school shut down. These are a great way to get some weaving practice and you have a useful product when complete.

And, my current fourth graders are finishing up embroideries from last year as well - we were using the couching stitch.

Our winter mystery drawing was called Snowman Lane! 

We made sets of holiday cards by building a collage, then placing it under the folded paper and rubbing with the side of a crayon. This type of printing is called collagraph.

  1. These are great. I'd love to know the steps to the Northern Lights monoprint art. And have a very Merry Christmas.
