3 Fun Art Lessons to Show Gratitude

Above the several years, I have performed a handful of gratitude design and style projects that my pupils have not only loved but seriously sparked joy all-around the university. I’m breaking these down from most associated to most straightforward incase you are unsure which you’d like to do.

Let’s begin with my most loved: Gallery of Gratitude Modeling Clay Portraits!

For all the lesson facts, you can visit my initially weblog post where by I produced a video clip I shared with my college students. This released a modeling clay artist as perfectly as walked them through the actions. 

I did this lesson with my fourth grade learners. They could pick out who to produce a portrait of…but, as you can consider, that bought a small tricky. Several learners volunteered to develop a portrait of a trainer or team member whom they did not know nicely. We talked about how everyone in the school is significant, their role in the faculty and how they make our faculty greater. Soon after the initially two 30 minute artwork lessons, we received about this significantly. 

You can see their concluded portraits below, framed in a sparkly Interest Lobby plate! College students also had to type up why they appreciated the team member. This was printed on framed paper and hung with the clay piece. Many academics even now have these portraits in their classroom!

This Gallery of Gratitude was made by all of my pupils, kindergarten through fourth grade. My more mature pupils created the portraits though my kindergarten and 1st graders extra the Higher Fives and the hearts. 

Here was the established up for my learners to create their framed portraits. Instructors names ended up laid out as properly as sparkly paper for the frame. 

Like the other project, college students had to express their gratitude toward the decided on staff member. 

If you will need a shorter lesson or one particular that is additional university student-targeted, consider this Very small Gallery of Gratitude on for measurement! You can download it for no cost ideal here!

There is even a simplified version for more youthful students, also free, proper below. Have fun!
