SnowBalls an art project based on the book by Lois Ehlert

Snowballs by Lois Ehlert inspired my class to create art in her style. I gathered magazines and cut out things that could be used for eyes, noses, mouths, hats, scarves, buttons, and all of the things a snow person needs. We tore three circles out of white paper and glued them on a blue background large on the bottom, medium size in the middle, and the smallest snowball on top. We scavenged through the picture box and old magazines and created our artwork. The writing project was to write directions on how to make a snowman. We took this one step farther in the computer lab and created power point presentations in which the snowballs were actually moved through animation, one on top of the other. If you would like more detailed information on the power point, leave a comment, and I will go into more detail.
