The Pinwheels for Peace Project is a global movement of people who express their desire for peace by “planting” pinwheels in the ground outside public places, like libraries and schools, every year on September 21, the International Day of Peace. You can join a Pinwheels for Peace event near you, or plant a pinwheel on your own or with friends. You could even organize a Pinwheels for Peace event in your community and create an entire garden full of pinwheels!
I'm thinking a peace quote in black on the inside and a colorful painting on the outside.

A few days ago I posted a fractured art idea. I had a go at creating an example for my relief folder, & also to see how long it would take to complete! After scrunching the paper, & starting to trace over the lines, I decided to cut the A4 paper in half! It took 30 min to trace the lines & about 45 min to colour in. Not as long as I thought it would take! Plus that time included helping my little boy with his own cutting, glueing & colouring project.

I found this lesson while doing a Google image search for hands and thought I would try doing it with my current sixth grade art students. I think what attracted me most to the lesson is how simple it is to do. I mean what can be easier than tracing your hand? It also looks really cool when it is finished! Step 1: Trace your hand lightly using a pencil. Do this step as lightly as possible because your original outline of your hand should not show when finished. Step 2: Using a thin black Sharpie marker, start adding your lines. Start at the bottom of the page where your arm is and draw a curved line on the arm and then straight lines for the background. I had my students start by using a pencil for the first four or five lines until they got the hang of it, then using the marker to add the rest. Tips: Make sure your curved lines line up with the straight line in the background. Do not trace your outline with the black marker. Place your lines close together. If there is too much space between your lines it will not look like the hand is popping off the page. Step 3: Continue adding lines and moving up the paper towards the top of the page. When doing the fingers I found it was easier to curve your lines in the opposite direction instead of trying to add straight lines there. Step 4: The most difficult part of this project is ending the fingers. I found it somewhat difficult to find a way to get back to straight lines at the top once you get past the finger tips. Try to flatten out your line as much as possible so it no longer matches the curve of the fingers. Step 5: Choose three colors, using a color scheme, and color between your black lines using colored pencils. I used a monochromatic color scheme for my example. I also gradated my colors to help the hand pop off the page. I finished by using a kneaded eraser to lift some of the color off the ridges of the fingers, hand, and arm. I did this lesson with my sixth grade students but I think it could be done with younger students as well. Once I knew what mistakes were common, I could explain the lesson to them a little bit better and avoid those mistakes.

Runde's Room: We Heart Books
Valentine's art project
easy art project
I started a few heart-themed activities with my students yesterday. We're making a bulletin board display titled "We Heart Books". I'll share pictures of the completed bulletin board tomorrow, as a nasty little stomach bug kept me from school today. And before you feel sorry for me for missing Valetine's Day at school, I was quite okay with it -hormone crazy twelve year-olds on sugar highs isn't exactly my idea of fun. ;) Anyhow, we started off on Monday morning with some fun "heart art". We talked about monochromatic colours and lines, and I showed them how a curve in the line can make an optical illusion. It was an easy and inexpensive art activity - all they needed was a ruler and a few markers or pencil crayons. I also had the students create "heart art" in language. I had the students write about their favourite books they had read this year. I gave them a list of prompts (I'll upload the assignment sheet when I post pics of the bulletin board - it's at school, too), and had them write their answer on a site I found through Pinterest - Festisite. This site created cute little hearts from their writing - which look great posted beside the line heart art. And, because it's Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share a little bit about my Valentine. I'm linking up to Buzzing with Ms. B for her "How I Met My Hunny" linky party. I met my husband when I was in grade 12 and he was in grade 13 (yes, we used to have 5 years of high school in Ontario). Although we went to the same high school, I somehow didn't meet him until we were both on a bus going to a ski trip in Quebec. It was VERY late at night (or VERY early in the morning) when we were first introduced, so I don't think we exchanged many words beside "hi" (although I do remember I thought he had beautiful eyes). To sum up our 20 year history in a short little paragraph, we were together by the end of the trip, and have been together ever since. We ended up going to the same university, moved back home together, found jobs, got married, and had three beautiful little girls. It may not be the most exciting of stories, but it's our story ... and I think it's perfect. :) This was us just after we graduated high school ... almost 20 years ago ... Here we are at our wedding ... ten years ago ... And here's one from this year. Love you, sweetie. Happy Valentine's Day! Happy Tuesday! And Happy Valentine's Day!
This is a great project. I pre-made silhouette templates and had the kids pick the one that most resembled them. They had to fill in the silhouette with their favorite things, outline it in black marker and color with Sharpies. We used watercolor over the whole thing to unify it, then cut out the silhouettes and put them on another sheet of poster board.
