African Masks. Foil repouse colored with sharpies.

LOVE THESE DECORATIVE WALL HANGINGS! create 3 symmetrical radial designs on 6x6" sketch paper, later transfer designs onto 36-gauge aluminum and use tools to emboss them. Black India ink was painted onto the surface of the embossed metal and later buffed away using steel wool. Use wire to hang the three pieces together and added small craft mirrors to each one to create the final decorative wall hanging (From The Calvert Canvas: School Art Camp)

Northern Lights- chalk pastel with cut paper silhouette of conifer trees

3rd graders created jellyfish using glue and added small touches of color while glue was still wet. After glue dried, areas of the jellyfish were filled in with oil pastel to resist the blue paint. Paint the water blue & sprinkle salt. To finish the picture the salt was brushed away and a wet cotton swab was used to remove some of the paint from the glued areas. The edges were torn to give the picture a ragged white edge then glued to a larger piece of blue paper.
