Art lessons for K-3 grade

Need some lessons and ideas for teaching art elements. Was thinking of lessons like mixing colors, then doing an art project with this lesson. Another would be a lesson on texture, then doing an art project with this lesson and so forth. But those are really the only two I can come up with. I would like to have 4-5 lessons on art then think of projects that will reinforce what we learned. Does this make sense??

I think you're on the right track. Of course, all art activities have something to do with one or more art elements. Having your students paint a wet into wet watercolor would be a good way to learn about color mixing. This lesson at The Imagination Factory may help. Go to http://www.kid-at-art.com/htdoc/lesson30.html. Color and the other elements are discussed at http://www.kid-at-art.com/htdoc/lesson70.html. Although this project is too advanced for younger kids, it will be a good review for you. Don't forget to introduce cultures and famous artists along with your art making projects.

Colored Polar Bear Story & Activity
Once upon a time there was a beautiful white polar bear who often visited
the St. Lawrence Island in Alaska. Now on this island, you find a little
schoolhouse filled with many boys and girls and their beloved teacher,
It seems as though a neighboring child from Siberia ventured
across the Bering Strait to St. Lawrence Island. Her name was Mary,
and she had beautiful golden hair. As she explored the island, she soon
met Mr. Polar Bear.
The children watched out the windows of the
schoolhouse as the bear wished he had golden hair like Mary's. He shut
his eyes tightly and wished very hard for golden hair.
Now will you just shut your eyes for a moment
and help polar bear make his wish?
(Teacher puts 2 drops of yellow food coloring in bear bottle)
Now you may open your eyes!
AMAZING!
A blond polar bear- Oh, my goodness!
Do you know what the children
shouted out the windows of the schoolhouse? Do you think they liked a BLOND polar bear?
Teacher gets children to slap, slap, clap, clap, and snap and say:
POLAR BEAR, POLAR BEAR
YOU ARE A SIGHT!
YOUR COLOR WAS RIGHT
WHEN YOU WERE WHITE!
Mr. Polar Bear was MIGHTY SAD! He thought the children would like his
new golden color! He climbed on an iceberg and began to think about his
problem.
Now, as Mr. Bear rested, he caught a new scent in the air. What did
he smell? As he raised his head and looked around, he saw a young boy coming closer.
Raylene was from the GREEN forests of Canada. He wore a green hat, a
green sweater, green pants, and green boots. Guess what he had in his
pocket? Raylene had a GREEN lollipop! Polar Bear thought GREEN must be the most beautiful color in the world! Maybe he should be a green bear. He
shut his eyes and began to wish he was green. Can you help Mr. Bear?
(Teacher puts 2 drops of blue in)
Now he was a GREEN polar bear!! But the children said:
(slap,slap...repeat chant above)
Now this made Mr. Bear feel real bad. He pouted and pouted. Polar
bear began to walk across the snow. As he topped a big snow drift, he met
COUSIN BROWN BEAR from Kodiak Island. Cousin Brown Bear had followed the path of green tears that came from polar bear.
The two bears had a nice,long
visit and before long, Polar Bear began to admire his SMART
COUSIN. The Kodiak Bear is the world's largest bear and gets angry very
quickly. Polar Bear thinks maybe the children would like him if he were brown
instead. Let's shut our eyes and wish with Polar Bear.
(Teacher adds 2 drops of red, and children repeat chant above)
Polar Bear felt so bad, he ran away from the children and dove in the ice
cold waters of the Bering Sea. Polar bears are the best swimmers of all
bears. His thick, heavy fur was now BROWN and looked quite strange as the
children watched him swim DEEP, DEEP, DEEP into the sea.
Now, if you will just shut your eyes
and think about Polar Bear swimming around under the cold, cold water, a
tiny bit of Alaska magic might happen.
(Teacher bleaches the water, while their eyes are closed, and continues to talk
about polar bear swimming while the bleach takes effect)
Polar Bear swims up, up, up, up, to the surface and guess what!
Children chant:
POLAR BEAR, POLAR BEAR
Your color IS right!
WE LOVE YOU!
WE LOVE YOU!
YOU ARE WHITE!
Polar Bear decided NEVER to change his color again. After all, polar
bears are supposed to be WHITE, RIGHT?

Line Collections
1st Grade

Goal:
Students will learn that lines and shapes in a line can create texture.

Materials:
9 x 12 color sulfite paper or heavy construction paper
Prismacolor pencils
samples of project
Book – “The Spider Weaver”

Demo:
1.Read the book “The Spider Weaver”. Discuss with class on the different kinds of lines that are used in the web.

2.Show them some examples of the project and discuss any types of lines they may have missed. Use as many descriptive words as possible.


3.Demonstrate how to draw a web. Draw four lines: top to bottom, side to side and corner to corner.

4.Draw the connecting web lines.

5.Then fill it with all kinds of line collections. Include implied lines using dashes and dots. Also lines of different shapes (triangles, squares, etc.)

6.Discuss how neat the samples are. Suggest to them work slowly and carefully. Working fast will result in messy lines and a messy project.

Time Allotment...
Day One – Read book. Discuss. Demo. Draw web and start lines.
Day Two, maybe Three Review. Work. Finish. Remind them to working slow and carefully.

Wow! This is a great story and will tie in really well when I do my bears unit later this year. Even though we are starting out talking about colors and color mixing, it will be an excellent review later on in the year.
Thanks for sharing
