Eric Carle's Art Lessons

Eric Carle is one of my favorite Children Book author/illustrator. I strongly feel that all children must read his vibrantly illustrated and child-friendly books! In this last term of the year at Braddell Heights, I introduced Eric Carle to my 2 classes.

Lesson 1 - Let's make lots of beautiful colour paper like these!

Lesson 2 - We cut and paste them, turning them into pictures!
Spotty Turtle and Flowers - Jairus 6 years old

Crecent-pattern Shell Turtle - Nikhail 5 years old

Smiley Turtle - Raghav 5 years old.

For the older kids class, I let them make 2 pictures and join them up together. I also taught them how to make the sea with blue and white streaked paints and mixing random colours for the sky.

Flying Cat & People and (japanese-looking) Big Fish caught on the fishing line.
