3-Ingredient Art 1/2 Lesson Plans
3-Ingredient Art is all about simplicity…making the most of what you have and not worrying about purchasing fancy or hard-to-find art supplies. The three lessons featured in my newest PDF are created using three basic products: paper, markers or pastels and paints. How simple is that?
Colorful Clowns: Guide the children through a fun drawing lesson that teaches how shapes make drawing easy. After the drawing, get messy with tempera paint the kids can mix themselves. A wonderful lesson in self-expression with an emphasis on color and paint mixing.
Color-wheel Scarecrows: A great platform for teaching the little ones about primary and secondary colors. The how-to-draw handouts make it easy for you to inspire your students even if you have little art experience.
Elmer the Elephant: Be inspired by the charming tale of Elmer the Elephant. Children follow a simple directed line drawing lesson and then decorate their own “Elmer”. An option to paint a background is included.
