Teaching Art: 2nd Grade Foxes

I am lucky to teach art to kids K-5 at the best elementary school.  My kids go to this school and it's just down the street.  I'm going to start showing the GORGEOUS students' art work here.  Pinterest has been my best way to find projects.

I did this fox project with 1st and 2nd graders.  I found this draw along from Art Projects for Kids and was inspired!  

Budget is always an issue so this was a very affordable project.  
I used: 
*large (5x8) index cards from the school warehouse
*kids followed my drawing with pencils
*they were asked to add at least one unique detail (arms, crown, trees, mountains....)
*kids traced pencil lines with Sharpie
*kids used watercolor pencils to color fox and everything else
*kids used brush and water to blend color.

Every SINGLE student found success in this project.  I have fallen in love with each and every one.  These foxes are 2nd grade, but 1st did equally as amazing!
