Third grade studied Illuminated letters and manuscripts. Then, they created their own illuminated letter! Students had to use the first letter of their name to create an interesting design for the whole page. Also, they had the choice to turn their letter into something that begins with that letter.
Here are some of the wonderful fall leaves 3rd grade created!
3rd grade looked at and discussed the art of artist Wayne Thiebaud. Then, they created their own artworks inspired by the artist!
I had them use heavy weight paper for the base and gave students scrap paper from the scrap paper box to make their sculptures.
