Here Comes the Sun... 2nd graders & Laurel Burch
My 2nd graders looked at the "Celestial Dreams" designs of the fabulous Laurel Burch.
Here are a couple of samples of her artwork that I shared:
The kids said my window-shade (pic below) reminded them of Laurel Burch's suns. Thanks, kids!
The kids drew on 18" square paper, each incorporating some sort of frame into their design. Some drew suns and moons in a split design; others did just suns. They painted solid areas of color with bright pre-mixed tempera colors, mimicking the colors of Laurel Burch. Then they used oil pastels to add pattern, outline, and extra details. I'm so proud of their exuberant work!
Here's a couple of bulletin boards full of them. So cheerful!
