    Distance Learning Phase 1: ALL OPTIONAL

    Week of 3/30/20-4/3/20- 2nd Grade Spirit Animal

    Overview:  Last week we drew rainbow animals. If you want to continue with your animal, you may. This week we are drawing ourselves as spirit animals!

    Estimated Time: 20 minutes; more if you like, but you can always stop and continue next week

    Explanation: Draw yourself as ANY animal you have always wanted to be! Self-portrait turned WILD!

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons or markers)

    Things to know: Start with your basic self-portrait (face shape, eyes, nose, mouth) and add the most important features of your spirit animal to your self-portrait for your TRANSFORMATION!   

    Tasks:

    1. Draw a self-portrait (picture of yourself). Using correct facial feature shapes and placement.
    2. After you have your face drawn, TRANSFORM yourself into your spirit animal!
    3. Ask yourself, what animal would you be? Use your creativity from last week's rainbow animal and add color to your self-portrait spirit animal! Can't wait to see how they turn out! Remember to take your time, give your best effort, and have fun!

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheis2ndgrade just for my 2nd graders! If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there. I will have examples of artwork available.

    Week of 3/23/20-3/27/20-  2nd Grade Rainbow Animals

    Overview:  We will be reviewing drawing animals with shapes like Blue Dog. This week we can draw any animal. Animals will be colored with feelings- rainbow animals here!

    Estimated Time: 20 minutes; more if you like, but you can always stop and continue next week

    Explanation: We have been designing our blue dogs with shapes, such as: ovals, circles, letters “U”, etc. When coloring your animals, the crazier the better. Let your imagination run wild!

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons or markers)

    Things to know: When looking at pictures of animals, it is overwhelming to look at the entire picture. Look at shapes, letters, numbers, and objects that are familiar to you- SIMPLIFIED!  

    Tasks: Begin drawing your favorite animal in simple shapes. Remember to use simple shapes and add them together. If you have always wanted to see a blue cow with green spiked hair- today is your day!

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt!

    Week of 3/17/20-3/20/20-  2nd Grade Dream

    Overview:  We will be reviewing Native American Dreamcatchers and the importance of their symbolism. We will be drawing the fantasy part- our dreams!

    Estimated Time: 25 minutes or more if you like

    Explanation: We have been designing, creating, and weaving one of a kind dream catchers. We have learned that the circle for the hoop for the dream catchers, the Native Americans believe that symbolizes strength and unity.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), an object to draw (anything)

    Things to know: Dream catchers are believed to catch the negative thoughts and let the positive thoughts go through the weaving.

    Tasks: With all the positive thoughts working through the weaving, we will be drawing our most recent dreams. Hopefully, they are full of fun and silliness. Sometimes these dreams do not make sense and that is when the best drawing happen, when they are our craziest fantasies!

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheisdream just for my 2nd graders!
