Painting Parties for Pattern and Line Review (and FUN!)

We kicked off the school year with my mask project and my emotions lesson and we've now started working on a school wide collaborative piece. This is something we've done most school years...and it seems to be really fitting now that we are all back together. Time to celebrate! 

When we do our big collaboratives, my students each make small parts (I share in the video below) that are attached to a large mural. To create the large mural backdrop, my students create these massive painted papers that I collage together. It all makes a whole lot more sense when I share it least I hope it does!
Storing these papers is a bit of a beast, especially when they aren't quite dry. We had them draped EVERYWHERE today! However, now that we have so many painted, I can start to create the background for their completed works of art. 
Until those are ready to share, I think if you visit this blog post, you'll get a better picture of what it is we're going for. 
My first graders will be doing a mural similar to this one with the flowers they created. In the video, I mentioned that our mural will be based on the Louis Armstrong song What a Wonderful World. Each portion of the song will have it's own mural piece with artwork created attached. 

Here's another one we did a couple of years ago. 
I'm seriously so tired, I hope I'm making some sort of sense! I will say that my students have loved working on this mural, especially creating these large pattern papers!
