When It’s Snowing, There’s Only One Thing to Do

In Art class first graders listened to the picturebook Snowballs, by Lois Ehlert, and were inspired to create their own snowman collages. On the first day, students painted beautiful watercolor resist backgrounds (using white crayons to draw snowflakes) and sprinkled the wet, painted paper with salt which created a speckled texture. The next class period students chose from a variety of materials to make their own unique snowman. As you can see, the boys and girls were very proud of their masterpieces!
