Moose Art

First graders are learning about friendship, moose, horizon line and reviewing neutral colors. Thank you Deep Space Sparkle for this wonderful project.  We read  the book, "Ernest the Moose Who Doesn't Fit." Then discussed horizon line, where the sky and earth meet. The students are ready to not just paint a blue stripe at the top edge of their paper to indicate sky.  We are painting like "First Grade Artists" now!We drew and painted our backgrounds. Next we used brown and black water colors to paint " moose fur". This is a great way to use up these often overlooked colors. Next week  we will draw our Moose with antlers!
