Welcome to Primary Art, home to my favorite art lessons. I am an elementary school art teacher, chronicling my favorite art lessons. I hope to bring ideas to other art teachers, parents, home school teachers, and artistic children. Here you will find a catalog of lessons for grades kindergarten through 5, as well as other art-room related stuff! Thank you for visiting!
First Graders just finished a unit on color and organic shapes, so I combined the two with this cloud weaving, clouds being organic shapes. Students cut out the cloud by folding a 12x18" paper in half and using bumpy lines. I cut the slits into their clouds and students carefully wove the rainbow in, and secured it with glue! I had the students add some shaving cream mixed with glue to create the cloud texture.
