I loved doing this in art class. Art With Mr. E: Line Design w/Shading - Grade Very cool, fun art shading project from Art With Mr. E. he's an elementary art specialist. Try this with your kids (but I think grown ups would enjoy this too).
winter portraits - I like this alternative to drawing the face as the only way to make a portrait or self-portrait. I don't really like that it seems to be directional drawing as they all look the same.
Like the texture the newspaper gives and the different values in the ice cream. Done this one, kids love it and it turns out great! Watercolor newspaper or use magazines! Great for our open house ice cream social for graders!
Using forks for printing. Would make such a cute project for Kdg. I could see them making some very funny porcupines! Fork stamp would be good for hay stacks or a dog. Can use fork for upper grades and manipulate so just 2 prongs were printed and etc.
