Paul Kleek Portraits

Falling back in Space Portraits!

1. Start with a LARGE sheet of paper...18x24 is what we used
2. Have students trace hands facing outward, towards the top of the paper. A friend may help.
3. Put papers on the ground, and have students trace their feet facing outward slightly towards the bottom of the paper. they LOVE this part!
4. Have students draw an oval/circle for the head slightly above the hands (in the middle)...add details to the face, hair, etc...to make it look like them
5. Then, add a neck, show them how to attach the arms to the hands, and the pants to the feet. The arms and legs get larger as they get closer to the tracings of hands and feet. Draw details, details, details!
6. Discuss how they are 'flying back in space' and WHERE ARE THEY?! I have students drawing outer space, under the ocean, in a lightening storm, in tornadoes, etc....
7. Outline in sharpies
8. Paint with watercolors (we added crayon detail for small things as a wax-resist)

breakdown of my Nutcracker drawing project, this time using oil pastels on black construction paper.
My large construction paper comes in 18″ x 24″ size, so I cut long narrow panels of 8″ x 24″ for each student. Each also got a cardboard template measuring 7″ x 4″.1. Following the steps shown in my diagram, the students first placed the rectangle in the middle of the black paper, and traced it with a pencil.2. Two vertical lines are drawn up from the top of the rectangle, and one horizontal to divide that shape in half.3. The bottom of that rectangle is the face, and eyes, mouth, moustache, beard and hair are added.4. Half-circles are drawn for shoulder pads, arms and hands go below.5. Two legs are added under the body, with half-circle feet for boots.6. Uniform details are drawn on the body, along with a belt.7. I had my students then trace all the pencil lines with a black pastel, and then color the body in with lots of red, black, white, and a little skin color.California Visual Arts Standard: Creative Expression 2.02.6 Use geometric shapes/forms (circle, triangle, square) in a work of art.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANTS AND SPIDERS

Ant facts

Spider facts

  • There are more than 12,000 species of ants all over the world.
  • An ant can lift 20 times its own body weight. If a second grader was as strong as an ant, she would be able to pick up a car!
  • Some queen ants can live for many years and have millions of babies!
  • Ants don’t have ears. Ants "hear" by feeling vibrations in the ground through their feet.
  • When ants fight, it is usually to the death!
  • When foraging, ants leave a pheromone trail so that they know where they’ve been.
  • Queen ants have wings, which they shed when they start a new nest.
  • Ants don’t have lungs. Oxygen enters through tiny holes all over the body and carbon dioxide leaves through the same holes.
  • When the queen of the colony dies, the colony can only survive a few months. Queens are rarely replaced and the workers are not able to reproduce.
* Spiders are arachnids, not insects.
  • Other members of the arachnid family include scorpions, mites, ticks and harvestmen.
  • Spiders have 8 legs while insects have 6.
  • Spiders don’t have antennae while insects do.
  • Spiders are found on every continent of the world except Antarctica.
  • There are around 40000 different species of spider.
  • Most spiders make silk which they use to create spider webs and capture prey.
  • Abandoned spider webs are called cobwebs.
  • Most spiders are harmless to humans but a few spider species, such as the black widow, can bite humans and inject venom. Deaths from spider bites are rare however.
  • An abnormal fear of spiders is called ‘arachnophobia’.
  • Tarantulas are large and often hairy spiders, the biggest species have been known to kill mice, lizards and birds.
  • Most tarantula species pose no threat to humans.
  • The largest specie of tarantula is the Goliath Birdeater.
  • Giant Huntsman spiders have leg-spans of around 30cm (12 in).
