Kids' Spring Art Project
I was in my daughter's 4th grade class the other day, leading the kids in another art project. This month, in honor of spring, we made tree trunks by tracing the kids' hands onto brown construction paper, cutting them out and gluing them to a sheet of blue construction paper. They then added blossoms to the branches of the tree by dipping Q-Tips in paint and applying the paint either in dots or strokes. The kids used markers, crayons or colored pencils to add other artistic details to their project. I am so impressed with the various artistic details that were added to each piece! The kids' creativity and talent constantly amazes me! Out of the 34 kids who participated in this Spring Art Project, 26 of them photographed their finished pieces in my SHOTBOX. They love this final step of their art days with me and I love being able to admire and compare their projects at home, on my phone or computer. Below, you can see the rest of the finished projects. I love each and every one of them!

Below you can see the setup inside the box. I didn't use any background, base or backdrop since I knew that I would be cropping the picture to eliminate everything but the actual art project. We used the top shot feature and each of the kids took their own pictures. I love that the SHOTBOX is so easy to use that even a 4th grader can handle it! I also love that one of the 4th graders wanted to get a thumbs up in his picture. This project and the SHOTBOX definitely get a thumbs up from me!
