I subbed in a friend’s second grade class today and on the lesson plans, she wrote (for one of the afternoon options): “Math games or one of your amazing art lessons”.
I thought about what art lesson I could do with them. I figured apples were pretty typical for a fall art project and created this lesson. It took the kids about 45 minutes.
We did a directed drawing of a whole apple then an apple that had been eaten.
They went over the pencil in sharpie. Then they painted.
They had the option of using white crayon to make designs before painting. We then glued both images to black paper.
