Welcome to Dream, Draw Create!
This blog features art projects for children. These projects have been used in my classes. My lessons allow children to learn about all the elements and principles of art while striving to introduce them to many genres of art.

Mondrian animals

Grade 4 used black paint to create Mondrian type vertical and horizontal lines.  Red, yellow and blue primary color paint was added in the spaces created by the the lines.  Students also chose to paint some spaces black or leave some white.  Week two the students drew an animal shape of their choice on practice paper.  The outline of their animal was then cut out and traced onto the painted paper.  During week two the traced shape on the painted paper was cut out and glued onto a white background paper.  Crayons were used to add details such as trees, sky, plants etc.  Some of the students also chose to use the painted paper for added details in the background, such as stars in the sky. This lesson took three forty minute classes to complete.
