Another of July project our Pre-k class did. This was a hit with all the kids. Some turned out better then others but overall the craft was a success. Toilet Paper Roll Fireworks Stamp Craft for Kids - Great for a of July art project!
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).
Peter Eisenman's Berlin/Holocaust memorial Light and Shadow. I like the way the structure of the building creates strong impressions of light and dark. Also the juxtaposition between the natural and man-made forces interests me.
