This is the first project I do for the week with my camp groups. The week one projects were just as fantastic, but my camera was dead so I missed getting photos. I found the idea here, and even though it was done by high school students, I knew it would adapt well for my art camp kids (grades 3-8!)
Students started by making a collage with the "color story" of their choice onto a piece of foam core. It's really interesting to watch them choose colors - some have trouble going off the grid, but I try to keep reminding them that it's a color story, it doesn't have to be ALL one color (so if they chose orange, they can use yellows and reds - but in the end, the overall message should be orange.)
The next day, they do basic one point perspective drawings using a variety of shapes, onto a separate paper. The shapes are colored in with gold Sharpie, and the lines are colored in using colors that match their color story.
I think they're just beeeauuutiful!!
