1st Grade Suns with Personality





     First grade artists enjoyed learning that different cultures sometimes have different kinds of folk tales.  We talked a little bit about fairy tales we know, and then we talked about the Aztec folk tale where there are multiple suns with personalities.  The kids were very excited about this idea and just looooove making suns with faces already!  The artists each created a sun with a face showing some kind of personality.  They mixed warm and cool colored paints in these vibrant artworks and completed them with simple construction paper patterns along the borders.

These are so fun- I like how each one has it's own little personality :)
