End of the Year Elementary Art Lessons
If you are looking for some fun elementary art lessons or projects to keep your kiddos busy and have a great time at the end of the year, here are some suggestions of some of my favorite projects.
The first is a FREE Andy Warhol hand print lesson. Andy Warhol was a Pop Artist that is famous for his prints of popular and common objects. This lesson gives some examples of Warhol's work and helps your students create a memory with their hands that they can use to compare from year to year as they grow. I also think that it would be fun to do a hand print project at the beginning and end of each year to compare how their hands grew!
This Frida Kahlo fruit collage lesson could also be tied into this time of year as the fresh fruits come more in season. Students learn about Frida Kahlo and create a fruit collage similar to her own still life paintings.
Last up, this Benin mask lesson helps students create leopard style masks. Any age of students love creating masks and these works of art are always a hit. I'm sure your students will enjoy finishing off the school year with some hands on projects!
