One of the K teachers asked me to do turkeys in watercolor. I had the students do a guided drawing in oil pastel.
They could make the turkey traditional or colorful. They could add pattern to the feathers and turkey.
Then they painted them with liquid watercolor.
For my 5th graders, I usually do a Jasper Johns flag lesson around Veteran’s Day. This year I changed it up a little. We discussed the history of Veteran’s Day.
We looked at the work of Jasper Johns. Then we discussed what kinds of images related to Remembrance Day and Veteran’s Day.
They created these images in tempera paint.
