Snowy Day Art

Posted by on January 26, 2022

The Snowy Day  by Ezra Jack Keats was the inspiration for our art project last week.

We began by reading the story together.  We then used a directed drawing technique to draw our buildings using sharpies.   We used vertical and diagonal lines as well as rectangles and squares.

After our city was complete, we then began to paint using water colour paint pucks.  We are learning to choose our brush based on what we are painting–big brushes for the sky, little brushes for the windows.

We ONLY used cool colours to invoke a feeling of a cold winter day.  The cool colours include: blues, greens, and purples.






After finishing the painting, we then dried our work with a hair dryer…yes a hair dryer!  This allowed us to add the snow using white liquid tempra and Q-Tips without having to wait!!

Take a look at our finished pieces below…
