Summer is near, and it’s time to take the fun up a notch! Art class is the time for your students to express themselves creatively by doing simple and fun art projects.
Introduce your students to famous artists so they can be inspired to create their own masterpieces. We put our thinking caps on and came up with five elementary art lessons to teach using chalk paint markers to close out a fantastic school year.
Mini Display Stickers
Allow your students to create their own stickers to put on their backpacks, electronics cases, or wherever they want to display their creations! Your learners will feel proud of themselves while sporting the sticker they created.
Turn Your Class Windows Into Stained Glass
Turn your plain windows into beautiful stained glass windows. All you need is painter’s tape, chalk paint markers, and your students’ creativity. Stick the painter’s tape on your window to create a geometric pattern, and then let your students fill in the shapes with colorful pictures!
When you peel the tape off, you will be met with the beautiful art pieces your classes created! Your students will love to walk by and see their artwork.
Enjoy the Outdoors & Paint the Rocks
Your students’ creativity doesn’t only exist in your classroom. Take your learners outdoors to find the perfect rock to paint! Chalk Ink’s chalk markers are perfect for all surfaces, and their pigmented color pops against the gray background of a rock.
Personalize Picture Frames
Chalk paint markers are great for all surfaces, including glass, wood, and cardboard. Your students will love personalizing picture frames no matter what material you choose. Encourage your students to use different colors, patterns, or phrases to create a memorable decor piece.
Create Signs for Their “Shop”
Ask your students, “If you could open a store, what would you sell?” Then, encourage them to create their store’s sign using their imagination. You should have your students present these signs so they can feel proud of their creation and “opening” their first shop!
As the school year dwindles and standardized testing ends, the lesson plans become a bit more relaxed. Use our list of elementary art lessons to teach using chalk markers for a creative, uncomplicated approach to complex creative thinking skills.
Instead of buying a couple of chalk markers at a time, we provide bulk chalk markers perfect for art studios, classrooms, or personal use. We provide a variety of colors and sizes that are great for art projects, big or small.
