Five week kids session at the MAG this last month

Today was my last Saturday of a five week session teaching  children's classes at the MAG.The students are ages  7-9. We worked on two projects a week. We would finish one and start the next.

The first week we worked on an abstract line design with black tempera and worked on shading and blending with colored pencils and fills in our shapes and backgrounds with those.

We created name aliens monsters.I have done this several times and several art teacher websites have suggested this activity. Kids write their name in cursive on a folded piece of paper with the names on the fold.Then they transfer the names to the other side on the fold.They choose where the eyes and face should be and they create a background and a place for the name monster/alien to be.
