Old Bear

Students in grades 1-3 created these artworks based off of illustrations in the book Old Bear by Kevin Henkes. On the first day, we went outside to collect several different types of leaves. We then painted the leaves with either white or gold paint and rubbed them onto the black paper to create leaf prints. During the next class, we read the book Old Bear and looked at the illustrations. I showed the students how to draw a bear and how to paint in different ways to create a texture similar to fur. In the final class, students cut out the bear and added a snow covered ground and snowflakes.
