Hot Air Balloons


Students began this project by drawing a shape in the center of their paper with oil pastels. They continued to draw the same shape surrounding their first shape until these concentric shapes filled their page. Next they used tempera cakes to paint the rest of the paper. When the painted paper was dry, they cut it into the shape of a hot air balloon. Using construction paper they collaged the basket and added a drawing of themselves. They used construction paper crayons to add details surrounding their balloons like clouds, stars, birds, trees, etc.
