Happy New Year!

Second graders had a lot of fun drawing and painting this abstract Happy New Year piece.  I pre-drew the horizontal lines and together we used oil pastels to write out our message.  Then students used watercolors to paint each shape created by the letters.  Students really focused on painting and used their fine motor skills!  The main challenge for students was to not use the same color in adjacent shapes.
