Third and Fourth grade collaborative circle paintings





I was so excited to see this idea of Circle Painting!!   I first learned about it at Barbara's Thought of the Day and then at We Heart Art.  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. for this wonderful idea.  We are making several collaborative canvases with this technique and they are going to be raffled off at our end of the year school FUNdraiser.  The kids had a blast creating these paintings.  This is the first video I have edited using Imovie!  I'm planning on making two more canvases with an older class to keep at school for display.

Marcia,

The paintings are beautiful and I am so envious that you know how to make movies with an IPhone! Owl City is one of my favorite artists and I love that song. Thanks for sharing!

Wow - so much energy there - I love the bright colours - fabulous!

Marcia said...

Thanks! Pat, the movie was made by taking video clips with a regular digital camera and then editing it on the computer on the Imovie program. I don't have one of those fancy phones, lol :)

These are beautiful! The children did such a nice job. Did you wait until the end to give them black paint to make some accents? I would love to try this sometime.

This looks like a lot of fun and love the way they do not come out looking like mud ;} I can't wait to try this myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

Marcia said...

Thanks! Yep, the black was only taken out when everything else was painted... just for little accents at the end.

UH-MAzing! Wow. These turned out great and will definitely become inspiration for our art project this year. LOVE the video. Very inspiring.

I'm really curious what kind of paint you used? Tempra, acrylic or oil? I'm guessing acrylic?

These are wonderful!
Thanks for the inspiration

Marcia said...

Thanks, Meg! We used acrylic paints.
