pinwheels project with introduction to 5 abstract artists/art forms and 5 techniques great start of year project- watercolor washes, opaque watercolor technique (staying inside lines), pointillism, op art, pollock.
Great first day of art project. OR This would be a great project (watercolor techniques) for high school students and then sell them to make money for art club, field trips or donate to a local museum. ---watercolor calendar by Flora Douville
Keith Haring project for my largest class! would be a super fun project for Art Club! - could have students trace their bodies in motion on butcher paper- the cut out, paint a black outline, and we will tape up to the wall and ceiling
end of the year project idea: Start by making a curvy continuous line with several large loops. You can add lines later if you wish. Rotate your paper around looking for images to fill in, such as heads, faces, eyeballs etc.
