This is a great winter lesson I've had success with in the past. I found the project on the website
"Art Projects for Kids" HERE. Kathy's always great in providing amazing step-by-step drawing instructions of you like to do guided drawing projects with your students.
I find these types of lessons help my weaker students have more success-
breaking it down into small steps really seems to help them.
So my Grade 1 kids drew along with me in pencil. Then they added patterns and details to their clothing. They outlined their drawings in Sharpies.
Then I did a brief watercolour painting demo for them. They drew snowflakes in the sky first using a white wax crayon- press hard! Then they painted the sky, then the clothing.
They all really enjoyed this project!
This took one- 40 minute period for all but 5 students to finish, but it was definitely rushed!
Next time I'd break it down into two periods.
