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.

Wild Things

Students in grades 1 through 3 created these delightful "Wild Things" based on the story by Maurice Sendak.  We looked at the book and talked about how the wild things were happy and not mean.  We noticed they all had smiles.  We looked at the wild things and noticed they were part animal and sometimes part human. We enjoyed seeing the textures and shapes which inspired us to pick up our pencils and crayons and begin creating.  We added styrofoam balls for the eyeballs attached with brass paper fasteners as an added special touch.  I think you'll agree these are some pretty "Wild Things!"
