art that lights up the night

As we enter the winter months with shorter days, 
I thought it appropriate and celebratory to create art that lights up the night.  

The children's art warm up consisted of drawing on strips of tracing paper with permanent marker.

After cutting out their drawings (for some, it was more appropriate to wrap the jar with their drawing), the children used modge podge to adhere their illustrations to their jars.

When our votives were complete, we ate our snack with the lights off.

We read the book, Tommaso and the Missing Line by Mattio Pericoli.

When creating our houses, the children chose from different shoe boxes.  They decided which direction they'd like their houses to face, drawing doors and windows, while I used my xacto knife to cut them out.

Students referenced magazine images, found papers and tissue paper to add images, pattern and color to the outside.  Some of the children spontaneously added to the inside as well.  

We added battery operated votives to our houses in another attempt to light up the night.
