Week of April 6-10 – KINDERGARTEN – James Rizzi Birds
Look at the first 2 photos below. On a white sheet of paper (any size you have), draw an outline of this bird, created by the artist, James Rizzi.
Draw it large to fill the whole space of your paper! You can use a black crayon. These are the steps to draw this bird:
- In the middle of the paper draw the letter “V”. This is the beak.
- Connect the top of the “V” with a curved line to create the top of the birds head. Add lines for the hair.
- Draw the eyes touching each other. Put a black dot in the middle for the pupil.
- Add 2 little lines between the eyes and the beak for the nostrils.
- Draw the letter “U” for the body, with an extra point for the tail.
- Draw 2 legs. Add 3 toes onto the legs.
- In the middle of the body, draw bumpy lines for the feathers.
- You may use any art materials you have at home to color in your bird. These examples were created with a black crayon and watercolor paints.
Week of April 6-10 – Grade 1 – James Rizzi Birds on a Telephone Wire
Look at the first 4 photos below. On a white sheet of paper, you will create a drawing of many birds standing on a telephone wire! You can read the directions for the kindergarten class to remember how to draw these birds. These are the steps:
- Across the middle of the paper, draw a line from one side to the other. This is the telephone wire.
- Draw as many birds as you can fit standing on the wire. Remember, we did this bird drawing last year in Kindergarten! Each bird can be posed in a different way and looking in any direction.
- Touching the bottom of the paper, add buildings and trees all the way across.
- Above the birds you can draw anything that would be up in the sky.
- Use whatever art materials you have at home to color in your drawing.
Week of April 6-10. AND Week of April 13-17 – Grade 2 – Poppies in the Field. (you have 2 weeks to complete this)
Look at the last 3 photos below of the red poppies. These were painted on blue construction paper, but you can use any color paper and color in with any art materials you have at home. These are the steps:
- The space is divided into 3 parts: the bottom is called the FOREGROUND. The middle is called the MIDDLE GROUND and the top is called the BACKGROUND.
- Draw (or paint) the largest flowers along the foreground. You should be able to fit 5-6 flowers
- Draw (or paint) the medium sized flowers across the middle of the paper. You should be able to fit up to 10 flowers.
- Above the middle ground flowers, you will add little dots of color to show the flowers that are very far away. There will be many of these smallest flowers.
*** IF YOU ARE PAINTING YOUR FLOWERS, DO NOT ADD THE BLACK DOTS IN THE MIDDLE UNTIL THE RED PAINT IS DRY!!
- With crayons or oil pastels, add lines for the grass. The longest, heaviest lines should be in the foreground.
- The middle ground grass lines should be shorter than the foreground grass. You should draw some grass overlapping the flowers everywhere. Use different shades of green, yellow and even blue for the grass!!
- The background can be dots of color to fill in the space between the flower dots.
- You may add clouds in the sky and birds flying.
