The Grant

The Media Specialist and I received a grant to teach the third grade students about Caldecott winning books. We showed the students the various media the artists used and let the students pick which appealed to them. The grant allowed us to order high quality materials for the students to work with. They used gouache, pastels, india ink, collage, conte crayon, printing, water colors and colored pencils. They created on canvases, media board and watercolor paper. The grant was mainly about introducing them to and experimenting with the materials used by the Caldecott award winners. The students could choose any subject matter for their work.



Water color (yes, it is George Washington)
