    While not super heavy, this smooth white paper performed beautifully with a variety of markers, including permanent markers, washable markers from several manufacturers, and pens. No bleed-through! I also tested watercolor crayons and water and didnt have any bleed-through. I had minimal bleed-through when wetting down marker drawings to produce a watercolor effect. What a great, inexpensive choice for kids who love to draw with markers, or even for nature journaling with markers and pens. The 9x12 pad includes 40 sheets of bright white paper.

    Imagine crayons that transform into watercolors with just a few drops of water. This wax pastel set does just that! To test this product, I scribbled out a rainbow on paper, wet it with few drops of water, then blended it with my finger. The colors stayed vibrant, but blended like magic! Each color softly bled into the next. The effect would be even more gorgeous with a brush! These would be fun to use with our Famous Artist coloring books (especially Impressionists like Monet). I used them on a notepad, but they would work better on absorbent watercolor paper so it doesnt wrinkle as the water dries. I showed these to our Graphic Designer and she now wants a set! Each densely-colored pastel is about 4 long. The set of 10 includes rainbow colors plus black, white and brown. Stores in a convenient tin (3.75 x 4.5). ~Sara

    Explore art through Caldecott medal-winning childrens literature like Madelines Rescue, The Glorious Flight, Make Way for Ducklings, Owl Moon, Ox-Cart Man, Noahs Ark (Speier), White Snow, Bright Snow, and many others. Because theyre Caldecott winners, they should be easy to find in your library. The book is divided into sections according to art method: Pencil, Crayon, Marker, Colored Pencil, Chalk, Stencils, Collage, Watercolor, Tempera Paint, Color Mixing, and Prints. Lessons within these categories focus not only on these methods, but on art principles and elements such as line, shape, space, color, value, and texture. Three lessons are provided for each of the Caldecott books from 1928-1994 for a total of 171 lessons. Each begins with a one-sentence summary of the book used to highlight the concept. You should have the books on hand as they are used as springboards for the lessons. For example, lesson one in the Pencil section has students examine the individual logs in the illustration of the log cabin in Abraham Lincoln (Ingri and Edgar Parin dAulaire). The art concept is Shape vs Form. After demonstrating how to draw and shade a log, your children use pencil to build a house one log at a time, using the shading technique to create form from shape. In the Collage section, you and your children look at the illustration of the mountains in Grandfathers Journey, noticing how the shapes overlap to create depth. Students will create depth in collage using torn scraps of construction paper which they overlap and glue to create a mountain scene. Students use crayons and watercolor paint to create a Crayon-Resist painting similar to the illustration of the moon over the hills found in The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses. Instructions are clear and accompanied by illustration. You will not need previous art training to use the lessons; the activities were designed for the non-art teacher and have been classroom-tested. Not only do these lesson incorporate literature and art but, by choosing Caldecott books for inspiration, the author also infuses the lessons with a sense of purpose.

    Imagine a sheet of paper that feels like coffee-filters in texture. What can you do with it? Im glad you asked! Cut out t-shirt shapes, spritz with water-colors and watch them flow and blend to create patterns in a tie-dye effect. Try using food colors to dye the paper various shades, then cut out flower shapes and crumple them slightly for a realistic look. Once the paper dries, embellish with markers, crayons, glitter and pipe-cleaners. Dont forget to make some green papers for the leaves. Try making some butterflies by bunching up various colored paper shapes with a clothespin. With 50 sheets, you can try it all! Great multi-purpose paper for all ages and skill levels. ~ Sara

    Imagine the incredible projects you could do with students on a giant roll of paper. Ok, I will do it for you. Make a nature study and paint a classroom mural of the rainforest with all the creatures and plants. What about an ocean with fish and whales that are to scale with each other? This paper will stand up to wet paint (acrylics, watercolors) or dry media (crayons or chalk.) The large size also makes it perfect for life-size kid tracings, banners, posters, word walls and more. Just a few ideas to get you started! Paper is white, acid-free and measures 36 wide and 10 yards long. ~ Sara

    My first thought when I skimmed this book was, You know, if you didnt have the time to devote to a full-fledged art curriculum, this would be an excellent resource! And it is! Flexible for use with multiple grade levels, this art activity book features 40 lessons that cover the elements of art and design through inventive, open-ended projects that include tie-ins to learning about famous artists too! Seven chapters introduce the concepts of line, shape, texture, color, value, form and space through basic instruction and multiple activities. For example, lets look at the first chapter on line. Two pages of text introduce the concept and show examples of different types of line, and how they are used in art. The following projects include: making a crayon-resist painting of a spider web to appreciate linear design, making a decorative line design by filling in an outline of an object with small patches of lines in patterns, making a line drawing of an imaginary machine, like Leonardo da Vinci (complete with notes written backwards!), using a grid to make a drawing, drawing a musical instrument (while listening to music), then drawing lines around the instrument inspired by the music, and making a kaleidoscope line design by making a symmetrical design on a Styrofoam tray, then printing a block of the design. Projects in the other six chapters are just as inventive and creative, and I love the little Meet the Masters sections here and there that share information on a famous artist and their artistic style. The title sums it up the projects are so well focused that children will likely create impressive works as they learn the elements of design! Although some of the projects call for specific items (acrylic spray, vermiculite, plaster of Paris, or grass seed), these dont appear to be too difficult to find and most of the projects do rely on the basics construction paper, scissors, crayons, tempera paint, watercolors, colored pencils, and markers. Whether you are just considering incorporating art into your curriculum regularly, or you are looking for enjoyable art projects based on the elements of design, this is an amazing resource. 128 pgs.
