4th Grade: Tissue Paper Collage

My 4th grade students at Findley Oaks created tissue paper collages inspired by the artist Georgia O'Keeffe. She creates beautful flower paintings, so the students used flowers as their subject. They tore tissue paper to create the flowers and painted the background with watercolors. They are great!

5th Grade: Tempera Batik

My 5th grade students learned about the art of Batik (wax and dye resist). They used tempera paint and india ink resist. They turned out really cool!
