GIANT Art Supplies

Who doesn’t LOVE art supplies? Even if you don’t dream of bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils, it is difficult not to fall in love with these GIANT pencils & colored pencils created by 3rd & 4th graders. This lesson was inspired by a Tennessee art teacher, Cassie Stephens.

Students created armatures by using tag board and paper towel rolls. It is not easy to take a 2D material and make a 3D form, but these students really did an excellent job. After our armatures were complete, we got really (really) messy with paper mache glue! Once we the pencils had dried, we painted (first yellow, then pink, tan and black). Finally, tin foil was used to create the metal detail!
