Here’s an idea I tried awhile back when students were learning about camouflage. I loved that they had a chance to be fully immersed in their art, messy hands and all. http://artprojectsforkids.org/camouflaged-hands/

Making a great display for a playdough project makes all the difference in the world, if you ask me. Here’s what my Model Magic students are doing tomorrow — making a cooling rack out of craft sticks, and then lots of baked goods to fill them. I’m pretty sure my kids will come up with some really amazing creations, so check back to see the results tomorrow. http://artprojectsforkids.org/1481-2/

I’ve found some of the best art supplies at my local Smart & Final (restaurant supply) store. If you ever need scratcher sticks, be it for scratch art paper or clay projects, etc., try using wooden skewers instead. You can get 500 for $8, versus 25 wooden stylus' for $4.

Are your students studying American symbols? I tried this Bald Eagle drawing out with first graders last week, and they did an amazing job. PDF tutorial available. http://artprojectsforkids.org/portfolio/bald-eagle/

Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd, and being the big doodle fan that I am, I thought having a coloring page with lots of fun shapes to fill in might be useful in more ways than one. This is in the style of my Earth Day Doodle Mural, I hope you enjoy it! http://artprojectsforkids.org/earth-day-coloring-page-2/

You can mix up your underwater painting projects by putting a tropical twist to things. I like that this fish has all the usual parts, just in different proportions for a more exotic look. http://artprojectsforkids.org/tropical-fish-preview/

I mixed up the media a bit this week, and gave my students a chance to draw with Crayola Color Sticks on black paper. Drawing a clown face offered lots of creative coloring, without overly detailed facial features. http://artprojectsforkids.org/clown-face/

Today my after school students painted with acrylics on unstretched canvas, which will become journal covers next week. http://artprojectsforkids.org/mini-circle-painting/
