Alien Art


Earlier this week, we were with some friends for science and art. Our art leader for the day assigned the kids a 3-D alien project. First the kids painted a planet (semi-circle) then filled in the rest of the page for space. While that was drying, we talked about symmetry and the kids cut a figure from a folded sheet of paper. This was the beginning of their alien. Then, they colored in or decorated the figures with oil pastels, buttons, pipe cleaners, confetti pieces, etc. We then attached the alien to our background. I think the lesson was found at Deep Space Sparkle for any who are interested.

Below are our finished products:

I'm so thankful for these get togethers. Art is really not my thing, so it's great when my kids get the experience from a different teacher and perspective.
