Dia De Los Muerto Alter- This is usually my presentation table, however to give my students the full experience I set it up as an alter to honor our loved ones.
This is my informational table, consisting of fun worksheets, crossword puzzles, and coloring sugar skulls print outs. (This is usually my game table where students come to play “Art Bingo” or “Art Dice” -shown on the table)
Here we have “Pan de los Muertos” which is the traditional bread of the dead that is made for the Alter, we frosted ours and decorated them with sugar skulls. Mmm mmm good!
Here my students learned the history and process of screen printing and designed and made their own T-shirts for our Anti Bully Campaign. They loved the process and enjoyed making T-shirts for the entire school. My students ROCK!
My students learned about warm and cool colors by looking at the art work of Kandinsky. I first had them divide their paper into six squares. I had them paint warm colors first, then we painted our squares in cool colors. I then went over patterns with them and had them make a warm, cool, pattern with their circles. We used colored construction paper for the circles. You might want to remind your students to start with the largest circle and make sure they look at the color of their square to create the pattern. So if their square is yellow, which is warm, their 1st circle should be a cool color, and so on. It gets a little technical however this core relates to math, students should know how to create AB patterns. Remember be Art Smart and have fun. Enjoy😀🎨
