My Drawing 2 students wanted to do something special this year and since I wasn't really up for a field trip due to being pregnant I decided to plan a chalk art festival. Luckily my wonderful principal was completely supportive and even offered to buy pizza for my class and pay for my substitute for the day.
Since I had never done anything like this before it was really just a stab in the dark. I did some research and came up with lists of suggested supplies and techniques and picked several famous paintings for the students to choose from. I really didn't have any idea how big to have the students make the drawings, so I guessed on that as well. Most of them ended up about 5' x 7'.
It ended up being a lot of fun and I learned a few things that I could do different next time to make the day even better.
Enjoy the results:
|The Scream by Edvard Munch. Recently sold at auction for 119.9 million.|
|The Scream by Zach and Ed. They think that their drawing should sell for 120 million too.|
|Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh|
|Starry Night by Carl, Jaxon, and Lacey. The most focused group of the day without a doubt.|
|Self Portrait with Monkey by Frida Kahlo|
|Self Portrait with Monkey by Fernando, Yuri, Mishell, Juan, and Arianna. They loved that unibrow.|
|Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali|
|Persistence of Memory by Tyler, Sebastian, and CJ. They were a little creative with their interpretation of the colors.|
|Madame Monet and Her Son by Claude Monet|
|Madame Monet and Her Son by Ariel, Andrew, Ariel, and Baylee. In case you couldn't tell, this group is all about anime.|
