I found this great art project at Deep Space Sparkle, an art blog that I love to read. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to do it with my kids. It was the prefect winter project. I purchased the book and lesson from the site. I highly recommend her site. She has lots of great lesson ideas for art teachers but also lots of great ideas parents could do at home with their kids.
This lesson was great for teaching value and symmetry as well as practicing painting and collage techniques. The kids had a great time creating and they all came out great. Here are a few of them. To see them all just visit our project page on Artsonia.
