I teach art to K- through 2nd graders every Monday at Bailey's Elementary. Here are some of the example projects we have done. (I am not claiming these as high art, I just think they are funny! Enjoy!
Project: To make a newspaper all about you and your life. The "Stephen" Times, or The "Bligh" Bugle, or The "Peter" Post.
Project: On the back side you write and original shorty story about anything that you want.
Project: On the front you are to make a book cover for your own original short story in watercolors and markers.
Project: You are given a white sheet of paper with part of something drawn on it. You are to finish the picture in whatever you see the line creating.
