I'M Possible Banner


Our school theme here at Krahn Elementary is 
"I'M Possible!"
We are going to create a banner that uses the contrast of color against 
black ad white. The colored pieces will stand out as the words in the banner. 

These are some of the pieces before the banner was put together.

Impossible Creatures

Our theme for the school year is
"I'M Possible"

Students are to think of an animal they can create that is impossible. 
They can combine parts of other animals or make up their own creature. 


Begin lightly with pencil...
 Outline with black marker to help emphasize lines.
 Add details, texture or areas of darkness with a grey marker.

Warm Plateaus

 
This project is using a method of crayon resist that I use often with my 
Elementary Art students. 

We are using the SouthWest paintings from 
Candy Barr as inspiration.
