GRADE PREP WEEK 3 TERM 3 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

GRADE PREP WEEK 3

TERM 3 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

(27th July  – 31st July)

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

Hello to all my Grade PREP students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

This is week 3 of Term 3 2020 and all my Prep students are remote learning at home!

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of  self portraits !

Last week I asked you to draw a self portrait after watching a video.

I hope you kept last week’s self portrait somewhere nice and safe. You will need to submit last week’s self portrait as evidence of your completion of this unit of work when you submit your Specialists Rich Task.

 Instructions for the Specialists Rich Task will be forwarded to you soon.

 

 

We are going to be drawing a new self portrait soon so you will need some paper,

 

some pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

And I would really like it if you had a small mirror so you can look at yourself.

So I am going to give you a little bit of time to organise yourself.

I will just sit here on my blog and wait for you to collect some pencils and textas, some paper and, hopefully, a mirror.

If you don’t have a small mirror you can use to look at yourself perhaps you can move yourself to draw on the floor  somewhere in your house, maybe in the bathroom, where there is a big mirror,

so you can use the big mirror to look at yourself.

So I will just wait until you are ready……..

Oh, you are ready already! That was so fast! Well done!

So while you were getting ready to draw I found a beautiful story to share with you so let’s watch the video.

If you need to stop the video at anytime you can just press the pause button and then come back to the story.

PART 2 READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET

Oh, that was a lovely story called “The Colour of Us”  written and illustrated by Karen Katz.

I thought the illustrations were just gorgeous. Karen Katz is a very clever author and artist. She wrote the story about her daughter Lena and a conversation they had one day when they went out for a walk.

Now I would like you to get your small or big mirror

and have a very good look at your face!

Today you are again going to draw a SELF PORTRAIT but it will be a bit different this time.

Today you are going to draw a MONOCHROMATIC

SELF PORTRAIT.

 

Yes, it’s a very big word – monochromatic.

I want you to say that long word after me – monochromatic.

Let’s try it again – monochromatic.

 

Now I want you to say after me  – monochromatic self portrait.

Well done!

If we break the word up the mono part means one and the chromatic part means colour. So now you are going to watch a video made by a very clever art teacher called Cassie Stephens.

She is going to show you some self portraits painted by artists and then show you how to draw a monochromatic self portrait.

wow

In the video she talks to her students about using a very small piece of paper. You can use whatever size paper you have.

In the video she uses a thin black texta to start her drawing. You can use one if you like but you could also use a black pencil.

Let’s watch the video.

PART 3 READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET.

In the video Cassie decides to do her monochromatic self portrait using green.  These are monochromatic self portraits that were done by some of Cassie’s students.

You don’t have to choose green but whatever colour you choose you need to have several lights and darks of that colour.

I hope you have fun drawing your monochromatic self portrait.

You don’t have to submit your drawing this week. Again, I would like you to keep your drawing nice and safe. You will  then submit this week’s monochromatic self portrait as evidence of your completion of this unit of work when you submit your Specialists Rich Task.

Bye,

Mrs Menhennet

GRADE 1 WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

GRADE 1 WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

 

Hello to all my Grade 1 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

hello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

This is week 2 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 1 students are at home!

This is not the way I usually work with Grade 1 students to teach them about Visual Arts but we will be doing this for a few weeks until it is safe to attend school again.

Until then, we will be learning like this – online – using my blog!

You will remember me from our time in the art room together last year.

Yes, it’s me – Mrs Menhennet! Most Cambridge Primary School students that know me, recognise me by my multicoloured hair!!!

Cambridge Primary School students always ask me, “Mrs Menhennet, how come you have all those colours in your hair?”

And I always tell them, “I don’t know. It just grew like that!”

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of  colour !

  •  To introduce the order of the colours of the rainbow.

  • To remind students of  the elements needed for a rainbow to occur in the sky.

  • To introduce the audio function on my blog post.

  • To read along with Mrs Menhennet as she reads the blog post aloud.

  •  I watch and listen to the video song about Roy G Biv.

  • I can create a rainbow scene artwork with the colours of the rainbow in order.

  • I can create a rainbow scene artwork including the elements needed for a rainbow to occur.

  • I can play the audio function  on the blog post and read along with Mrs Menhennet.

Let’s get started!

We are going to be drawing a rainbow soon so you will need some paper,

 

some pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

I am going to give you a little bit of time to organise yourself.

I will just sit here on my blog and wait for you to collect some pencils and textas or crayons and some paper.

The size of the paper or what sort of paper it is doesn’t really matter.

So I will just wait until you are ready……..

Oh, you are ready already! That was so fast! Well done!

So while you were getting ready to draw I found a fantastic song to share with you so let’s watch the video.

If you need to stop the video at anytime you can just press the pause button

and then come back to the story.

Oh, okay, okay, you already knew that! I’m sorry I forgot how clever Cambridge Primary School Grade 1 students are!

 

 

I will not be surprised if you end up watching that song over and over again.

So what was that little elf’s name?

Yes, that’s right! His name is Roy G Biv.

Roy G Biv.

That’s a very unusual name.

Why do you think he is called Roy G Biv?

Oh, you are too clever.

His name is Roy G Biv because the letters of his name are the colours of the rainbow, in order.

R is for red.

O is for orange.

Y is for yellow.

G is for green.

B is for blue.

I is for indigo.

And V is for violet.

So, if you remember the name Roy G Biv you will remember the order of the colours of the rainbow.

wow

Now, as much as I like the video we just watched and I think the song is fantastic, I don’t like the way they show the colour indigo.

On the video indigo looks like a weird sort of pinky purple when indigo is actually a dark, dark, dark purply blue.

I always describe indigo as being the darkest purply blue of the sky in the evening, just before the sky turns black.

It is a much, much darker blue than the navy blue of our school uniforms.

So now you know all about the order of the colours of the rainbow I want you to draw a fantastic picture of a rainbow but

I don’t just want a picture of a rainbow. This is grade 1 so I want you using your brain and think really hard!

What do we need for a rainbow to appear in the sky? Do you know?

Yes, we need rain!

What else do we need?

Yes, we need the sun!

And there is something else we need. What could it be?

We have the sun and the rain but there is something else we need and it’s a little bit tricky!

Have a think!

Yes, you are too clever. We need clouds as well.

If there weren’t any clouds in the sky it wouldn’t be raining so we need clouds in the sky too.

Okay, so when you do your rainbow drawing I expect to see rain, the sun and clouds or there wouldn’t be a rainbow in your drawing. Does that make sense?

And when we are talking about what we need for a rainbow to appear in the sky we are actually doing Science while we are doing Visual Arts! Wow!

So I want to HEAR you say that you know we are doing Science during Visual Arts. So say it after me. “That’s Science in Visual Arts!”

Wait a minute! That was a bit too quiet. Say it after me, “That’s Science in Visual Arts!”

Hmmm, that was still too quiet. You are in your house and I am in my house so you are going to have to shout it for me to hear you so shout it after me, “That’s Science in Visual Arts!!!”

Wow! That was so loud my ears just fell off!

Right I’ve just stuck my ears back on so we can continue.

Before we start drawing I want you to think about the rainbow being shaped like a hump or an arch.

Sometimes, my students, when drawing a rainbow, start with a teeny tiny arch and they find they can’t fit all the colours into their rainbow as it is just too squishy.

Also a teeny, tiny rainbow might just look way too small on your paper so I don’t want you to draw a teeny tiny rainbow.

I want you to draw a great BIG, HUGE, ENORMOUS rainbow on your paper!

So, let’s practice using your magic finger.

Hold up your magic finger!

Wave it around in the air!

Make sure it is switched on!

Let’s test it out. Draw a small circle in the air.

Draw a large square in the air.

Write your name in the air.

Write your name 3 times really fast in the air!

Oh, you are faster than me as my name is soooooo looooong!

Now put your magic finger in the air and draw an arch.

Okay, so now we know it is working use your magic finger to draw a very small arch on your paper. Your magic finger is fantastic to practice drawing with as it draws invisibly and you never have to rub it out!

Now draw an arch  a little bit bigger with your magic finger on your paper.

Now draw a really big arch on your paper with your magic finger.

By practising that arch shape with your magic finger I hope you will end up drawing a nice large rainbow on your paper.

So your drawing needs to include a large rainbow, the sun, rain and clouds. You can even include a little Roy G Biv elf if you want!

But this is grade 1 so that is not all.

I don’t want to see any white paper gaps in your drawing.

Do you remember last year when we were painting and I told you I didn’t want any white paper gaps in your painting? Well this is just like that.

If you draw a really large rainbow, with all it’s colours in order.

And you draw the sun and lots of clouds and rain and Roy G Biv, there shouldn’t be much space left anyway.

But if there is white space left on your paper I want you to think about what you can draw to fill the space so your drawing is complete.

So, let’s make a list of what you need to draw –

  • a really big rainbow with all the colours in order

  • the sun

  • lots of clouds

  • lots of rain

  • an elf called Roy G Biv, if you want

  • no white paper gaps

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

GRADE 3/4/5/6/E WEEK 9 AND 10 TERM 2 2020

Hello to all my Grade 3/4/5/6/E students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 10 of Term 2 2020 already or that we are all back to school together again! HOORAY!Congratulations to us all, as we all survived more than 8 weeks of remote learning and teaching at Cambridge Primary School

in Hoppers Crossing, Victoria, Australia.

 While COVID19 is still active in Victoria, and according to the Department of Education and Training guidelines, Cambridge Primary School is trying to limit the amount of items that we SHARE at school. This includes  while working in the Art Room.

So, please bring your PENCIL CASE, your IPAD and HEADPHONES to each Visual Arts session for the rest of this term!

Also, EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE, is feeling a little STRESSED and ANXIOUS about being back at school, all together,  after such a long time away. It is totally NORMAL to feel this way.

So let’s all promise to BE EXTRA KIND TO EACH OTHER as we work together at school over the last weeks of term 2.

GRADE 4 WEEK 7 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

GRADE 4 WEEK 7 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

Your celestial bodies final artwork was due on the 24th May 2020!

You must submit all your artworks (rough draft 4 celestial bodies/rough draft 2 ideas for celestial bodies artwork/final artwork celestial bodies) or your report for Semester 1 will state NEEDS ATTENTION in the Visual Arts section.

Hello to all my Grade 4 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 7 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of the Worldwide Hexagon Project!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT

is an art project that started in Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. in 2006 when some secondary school Visual Arts teachers got together over a coffee.

Those teachers wanted to come up with an idea that all their students could work on together and thus the Hexagon Project was born.

Now thousands of students from all over the world participate in this annual project.

Cambridge Primary School participates in the Worldwide Hexagon project every second year and has done since 2012.

The Worldwide Hexagon Project reflects on how we are all INTERDEPENDENT.

Most students easily understand the meaning of independence.

You start off as a baby not being able to do much and eventually learn to feed yourself and dress yourself as you learn and grow.

Once you start school you are developing as a child and a student and increasingly doing all sorts of things by yourself.

Being INTERDEPENDENT is how we all DEPEND ON EACH OTHER in different ways.

We are all –

  • local citizens (family, Cambridge PS, neighbourhood, Hoppers Crossing)

  • regional citizens (Werribee, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

  • global citizens

connected to and INTERDEPENDENT on each other for so many things and in so many ways!

How are you connected to others by your interdependence???

Here are 2 short videos for you to watch about INTERDEPENDENCE.


It is very clear that we all have a much greater understanding of our INTERDEPENDENCE in 2020 after being locked down at home in isolation for many weeks and having time to think about how much we rely on each other!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT  for students from aged 4-18+ uses the shape of a hexagon as a way for students to reflect on their INTERDEPENDENCE in an artwork.

I want you to create an artwork, using whatever materials you like, in the shape of a hexagon, reflecting your understanding of INTERDEPENDENCE.

When your artwork is complete I want you to photograph your hexagonal artwork with your device and send it to me by Saturday 6th June 2020.

I will then mark that you have completed a hexagon shaped artwork onto Compass and this will become part of your Semester 1 report for 2020.

The hexagon template for your artwork is available here. You are encouraged to print this hexagon and trace it to use as a template so all hexagons are the same size.

I will then print up the photos of  all your hexagon shaped artworks and display them at Cambridge PS.

If YOU want your artwork to be part of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT for 2020 you need to upload the photo of your artwork onto Artsonia.  This is your choice. If you do not want to participate in the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT you do not have to.

ARTSONIA IS READY FOR UPLOADING!

  1. Put your finished hexagon on a flat surface that is a different colour to your hexagon.

  2. Photograph your hexagon with your device holding your ipad flat and steady. Make sure you can see ALL your hexagon on the screen.

  3. Download the Artsonia app OR go to the Artsonia website.

  4.  Type in the access code NXRB-HBMR. Press login.

  5. Type your first name in the space provided. Your name will pop up with the first letter of your last name and your 2020 grade like this.      Shelley M (Shelley8939) Grade 4

  6. Click on your name  and you will be taken to a Welcome page.

  7. Click on add new artwork.

  8. Click on Hexagon Project 2020 for your grade level. Each grade level and Enrichment has it’s own project box .

  9. Click on the select image/video button to locate your photo on your device.

  10. Click upload now.

  11. Click accept.

  12. Give your hexagon a title.

  13. Click submit to teacher.

  14. You can enter an artist statement or press skip.

  15. Your hexagon image will appear and it will say that you have submitted your hexagon to your teacher for review.

Congratulations The uploading of your hexagonal artwork onto the Artsonia website must be completed by 30th June 2020 to be part of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT! 

Have fun!

Your celestial bodies final artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

You must submit all your artworks (rough draft of four/2 ideas/final celestial bodies artwork) or your report for Semester 1 will state NEEDS ATTENTION in the Visual Arts section.

Hello to all my Grade 4 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

I can’t believe it is Week 6 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of CELESTIAL BODIES in ART!

So, in Week 3 you drew a rough draft of four different celestial bodies. If you didn’t do this work go to week 3 here.

Reyansh 4F cb

Vivienne 4A CB

And in Week 4 you drew 2 ideas for a celestial bodies artwork. If you didn’t do this work go to week 4 here.

Now, in Week 5 and week 6, I would like you to create your final artwork for this unit of work. I want you to create a celestial bodies final artwork.

This artwork will require some thinking and some organising. So this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

In the past, my grade 3 students have created a celestial bodies artwork using clay like this.

This artwork involved-

  • deciding which of the celestial bodies you were going to create with

  • deciding how the celestial bodies were going to interact if the student was using more than one type of celestial body

  • deciding whether the celestial bodies claywork was going to be 3D and freestanding or flat

  • painting the claywork after it came out of the kiln

But you won’t be making a celestial bodies clay work in the art room.

In this time of remote learning we all have to adapt to creating at home.

How can you produce an artwork that has more than one celestial body in it? How can you put them together? Or perhaps you just want to create one of the celestial bodies? What will you use?

So you have lots of choice with how you create your celestial bodies artwork. However I want you to use more than one sort of material or one way of creating your art work. You have choices to make!

So perhaps you will draw,

or paint, or use oil pastels or chalk or watercolour pencils,

or use lego,

or make salt dough

Salt Dough Recipe

Ingredients

  • I cup salt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup hot water

Method

  1. Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
  2. Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
  3. Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
  4. When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.

or use cut paper

or torn paper,

or cardboard

or aluminum foil

or use stuff from the kitchen drawers and cupboards

or stuff out of the laundry basket

or other stuff

or all of those things

or something I haven’t even listed!

This moon looks like it has been made using shaving cream!

If you want to look at more celestial bodies artworks go to my Pinterest board.

I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice

in how you create your artwork but I am NOT telling you to go out and buy stuff! Use what is already in your home! Don’t forget to ask permission to pull stuff out of cupboards to use or to make salt dough, or things like that.Email your photos to me when you have finished.

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

And, of course, tidy up after you have created!!!

I cannot wait to see your artworks inspired by celestial bodies!

You can send it in earlier but remember this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

Have fun creating!

GRADE 3 WEEK 6 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

GRADE 3 WEEK 6 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

Your sunflowers final artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

You must submit all your artworks (rough draft 4 sunflowers/rough draft vase of sunflowers/final artwork vase of sunflowers) or your report for Semester 1 will state NEEDS ATTENTION in the Visual Arts section.

Hello to all my Grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 6 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflowers in ART!

So, in Week 3 you drew a rough draft of four different sunflowers.

If you didn’t do this work go to week 3 here.

Ariella 3A sun

Mishika 3A sun

And in Week 4 you drew a rough draft of a vase of sunflowers. if you didn’t do this work go to Week 4 here.

Now, in Week 5 and Week 6, I would like you to create your final artwork for this unit of work. I want you to create an artwork of a vase of sunflowers.

This artwork will require some thinking and some organising. So this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

In the past, my grade 3 students have created a vase of flowers like this.

This artwork involved-

  • drawing a line across the paper to show the edge of the table

  • painting the background and the table clothgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 64 2015

  • printing flower stems using a piece of scrap cardboard on its sidegrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 59 2015

  • making sure the stems weren’t all perfectly straightgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 56 2015

  • painting or printing sunflower heads leaving one stem without a headgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 55 2015

  • making sure the sunflowers were not all just facing the frontgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 54 2015

  • some of the sunflowers might even be dropping their petals onto the tableclothgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 52 2015

  • folding a piece of coloured paper in half and drawing half a vase on one side, cutting out the shape and unfolding it to form a vasegrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 51 2015

  • gluing the paper vase on top of the stemsgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 49 2015

  • decorating the vase with buttons, beads, sequins, ribbon, paper and fabric scrapsgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 35 2015

  • creating the last sunflower head with Model Magic, an air dry clay, gluing it onto the last stem and painting it so one of the flower heads was three dimensional.grade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 28 2015

This sort of artwork is called mixed media because so many different sorts of materials and ways of creating are used at the same time to create a whole artwork.

But in this time of remote learning we all have to adapt to creating at home.

So you have lots of choice with how you create your vase of sunflowers this week. However I want you to use more than one sort of material or one way of creating your art work.

So perhaps you will draw

or paint

or use oil pastels

or use lego

or make salt dough

Salt Dough Recipe

Ingredients

  • I cup salt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup hot water

Method

  1. Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
  2. Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
  3. Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
  4. When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.

or use cut paper

or folded paper

or torn paper

or cardboard

use stuff from the kitchen drawers and cupboards

or stuff out of the laundry basket

or other stuff

or all of those things

or something I haven’t even listed!

And if you decide to create other sorts of flowers instead of sunflowers that is also okay.

This cooking artist, Lorraine Elliott from  her website Not Quite Nigella has created a focaccia as a vase of sunflowers!

I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice

in how you create your artwork but I am NOT telling you to go out and buy stuff! Use what is already in your home! Don’t forget to ask permission to pull stuff out of cupboards to use or to make salt dough, or things like that.

Email your photos to me when you have finished.

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

And, of course, tidy up after you have created!!!

I cannot wait to see your artworks inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings!

You can send it in earlier but remember this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

Have fun creating!

GRADE 4 WEEK 5 REMOTE LEARNING CELESTIAL BODIES 2020

GRADE 4 WEEK 5 REMOTE LEARNING

Hello to all my Grade 4 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 5 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of CELESTIAL BODIES in ART!

So, in Week 3 you drew a rough draft of four different celestial bodies

Reyansh 4F cb

Vivienne 4A CB

And in Week 4 you drew 2 ideas for a celestial bodies artwork

Now, in Week 5, I would like you to create your final artwork for this unit of work. I want you to create a celestial bodies  artwork.

This artwork will require some thinking and some organising. So this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

In the past, my grade 3 students have created a celestial bodies artwork using clay like this.

This artwork involved-

  • deciding which of the celestial bodies you were going to create with

  • deciding how the celestial bodies were going to interact if the student was using more than one type of celestial body

  • deciding whether the celestial bodies claywork was going to be 3D and freestanding or flat

  • painting the claywork after it came out of the kiln

But you won’t be making a celestial bodies clay work in the art room.

In this time of remote learning we all have to adapt to creating at home.

How can you produce an artwork that has more than one celestial body in it? How can you put them together? Or perhaps you just want to create one of the celestial bodies? What will you use?

So you have lots of choice with how you create your celestial bodies artwork. However I want you to use more than one sort of material or one way of creating your art work.

So perhaps you will draw

or paint

 

or use oil pastels or chalk or watercolour pencils

or use lego

or make salt dough

Salt Dough Recipe

Ingredients

  • I cup salt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup hot water

Method

  1. Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
  2. Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
  3. Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
  4. When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.

or use cut paper

or torn paper

or cardboard

or aluminum foil

use stuff from the kitchen drawers and cupboards

or stuff out of the laundry basket

or other stuff

or all of those things

or something I haven’t even listed!

This moon looks like it has been made using shaving cream!

If you want to look at more celestial bodies artworks go to my Pinterest board.

I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice

in how you create your artwork but I am NOT telling you to go out and buy stuff! Use what is already in your home! Don’t forget to ask permission to pull stuff out of cupboards to use or to make salt dough, or things like that.Email your photos to me when you have finished.
