The theme for our upcoming school Winter Concert is 'light'. I try to incorporate this theme into some of my art classes. I found THIS pin on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect for my Grade 3 class.
On heavy white paper, they used tempera discs and painted a yellow and orange circular pattern that would represent the candle light's cast light.
Then, on smaller white paper they painted one sheet colours for their candle, a yellow sheet for the flame and a green sheet for the wreath/greenery a the bottom of the candle.
The next class, students tore a shape for their candle, then the flame.
Once glued down they ripped long rectangular pieces for the greenery.
I love the simple charm about these!
