Art in the Classroom




I do this activity before the 4th of July for students to celebrate the meaning of the holiday.The teacher will ask students to think of a past or upcoming event that they are really excited about (e.g. birth of a new sibling, a new bike or present, a contest that they won, etc.)

Then, the group will be asked to draw and/or paint the special event on the bottom portion of a large sheet of paper. Next, above the picture, mixed media will be used to create fireworks symbolizing celebration of the event. (Note: Glitter pens/glue work well.)

Finally, a discussion can be held among group members about the artwork.
