Owl Moon

These owls were created by the artists in Pre- Kinder and Kinder. We began by painting a patterned background with blue and purple. I reviewed the different types of lines with the students (straight, wavy, zigzag) and let the students choose what kind of line they wanted to create. During the next class, we drew out an owl step by step, outlined it in crayon then painted with watercolors. During the final class, we read the story Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. Owl Moon was a Caldecott Award winner so the artwork inside is amazing and will inspire some great art from the kids. We then cut out the owls and a tree branch along with a big, silvery moon made from aluminum foil.
