The Art of the Picture Book---The Cat in the Hat!

This year my library teacher and I are collaborating with our students and we are doing "The Art of the Picture Book" as our theme. We are using sketchbooks that students take to Art Class and Library to do different activites. I love my librarian, she integrates art in so many ways in her class and she has such great books!

My 3rd Grade students did observational drawing and we discussed styles of art looking at illustrators. We chose Dr. Seuss to start off. We used a tints and shades background discussing how to create various blue hues. We also added some red collage paper pieces as a border. I am so proud of these kiddos. They did such an amazing job!
