This is a simple art project using only colored paper, pencils, scissors, and glue.
I had students attempt to draw the silhouette of the mother and child using samples I made as a guide,
while I allowed the reluctant artists to trace patterns onto blue paper. The students ranged from 1st-4th grade.
Here are two FREE patterns for you to use:
I also made up two samples, one of each pattern, for them to use as a guide. Look at Mattise’s Icarus for inspiration.
Here is a small sampling of finished pieces by my elementary students. They turned out great and each one was unique! See more of the finished pieces here on my FB page. I post weekly art projects, works in progress, and other artful endeavors on my FB page.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you’re having a blessed holiday season. ~Scarlett
