These beautiful bird paintings were drawn and painted by first graders. The students learned about the artist John James Audubon and we read a book about his life.
I love this book about Audubon, because it has beautiful pictures and ties science and art together nicely.
The students looked at pictures of birds and drew them with crayons. Then we painted the background with tempera cakes.
|This is a lovely picture.. too bad we didn't use thicker paper, it wrinkled a bit. Lesson learned!|
