6th graders completed these mixed media projects based on Salvador Dali. Dali was famous for artwork in the style of surrealism. His work mimicked a dreamlike state. The projects were inspired by the exaggerated legs pictured in the Dali paintings here. Students could draw an elephant, tiger, or any animal that their mind could imagine. This is a mixed media project because oil pastel, tempera paint, and a collage technique were used.

Owls were the subject of this adorable creation by my youngest artists - The Young 4's class. These students are 3 and 4 years old, and keep me on my toes. The owls were completed in multiple class periods... focusing on a section each time. The owl shape is filled with various lines. They learned about straight, broken, zig-zag, and wavy. The background of the night sky was filled with cool colors - greens, blues, and purples (Black might have snuck in there, too). Then basic shapes were added to give the owl a face, and wings. I think the results are just cute as a button!
Also pictured are the final results of their Mixed Media project. Masking tape was removed to reveal North Central Art in lettering. :)
