Check out what the students in Mrs. VandenBush's classroom are doing in art! Some of th lesson ideas I come up with, but many of these ideas come from other wonderful art teachers!
What do you use to make these Mexican Folk Art Mirrors? Supplies and size information would be helpful. Thank you!
Contruction paper traced from a plastic/paper plate. Then I had different circle tracers to get the patterns. Students used tooling to create radial balance on center piece.
These are beautiful!! Did you use aluminum foil?? What are the measurements?? I would love to do this with my students. Thanks!!
The center is actually tooling foil. I just used different size circle tracers (paper plates, formula containers, etc.) This I found was the easiest way for everyone to get perfect cicles :)
What do you use to mount them to the construction ppr?
Hot Glue :)
Did they use colored paper? With paint or pastel?
This is a great idea with wonderful results, but it would truly help to have some step by step instructions!
I would also like step by step instructions. These are beautiful!
I love this idea....I'm excited to try with my PreK children. I think they will enjoy looking for round objects to trace, Im sure they are capable of finding something small , medium and large to trace. I might use the heavy duty foil paper....I've used it before and it works great.
Thanks for the great idea and instructions! I'll be doing this next week for Hispanic Heritage Month with my tween book club. :-)
