Third graders love "cool" art priojects. This year we are designing skateboards. I allowed a lot of leeway in this project so that they will make some personal artistic choices. They could draw the top of the board, with or without wheels or the underside showing the trucks and wheels. They could draw any symbols or designs, except trite skulls and gory images. They could use any medium or combination of materials to color their board. As you will see from these early results, they used paint, colored pencil, markers, pastels, and had fun personalizing their boards.
