Some Small Christmas Decorations
This is what class usually looks like. ‘Kinda chaotic. Scissors, hot glue, sharp metal edges,construction paper, elmers, what could go wrong? Out of all the classes, I had a few students yelp when they got a bit of hot glue on their fingers. All but one wanted to finish, on their own, in spite of the risk.
A nice example all framed up. We framed up and matted most of the work going home.
Why small, you’re probably thinking.
1. Less materials
2. Working small encourages students to use finger and thumb(prehensility would be the professional wording).
3. Small stuff is more likely to make it home without being folded and otherwise mutilated.
4. Small area to work on generally means quicker to complete. With 1/2 hour art classes, I’m thinking this is something to repeat.
So the plan is to draw/color a Christmas themed picture.
Glue one or more down. This student,with the more is better idea. I tried to encourage one at a time, but hey, ‘ya ‘gotta respect a kid with a vision!
