The 4th grade team asked for a winter themed lesson to be part of the holiday card their students created. The cards were to accompany the December gifts that the students made for their families.
For this lesson, students looked at images of knit hats and caps as well as sweaters and sweater patterns. We discussed pattern and facial proportion before they began.
They first drew in pencil then went over that in permanent marker.
We used thinned down tempera paint for the skins tones and watercolor paint for the hats, sweaters and backgrounds.
Students were allowed to used white pastel to make snowflakes in the background.
