Grandma Anna Mary Robertson Moses

Grandma Moses is the subject of this month's Sketch Program. Time for some fun with old-time rural folk-art. This is a great project for kids who worry about perfection and getting their art "right" - our goal is to create simple, naive looking images!

You will need to bring the following items to class:
  • Tru Ray Acid Free Construction Paper - 12”x18” - 4 pieces of various colors 
  • Reeves Water Soluble Wax Pastels - (if necessary you can substitute regular crayons if you do not have water soluble crayons) 
  • Red ink pad - can be shared 
  • Grumbacher Filbert Brush synthetic, size 8- 1 per student (or if this brush has been too big for your students, just bring several cotton swabs) 
  • Wool roving - .1oz (basically, just bring any leftovers you have from our previous project) 
  • 1 glue stick or bottle of glue - can be shared 
  • 1 pair Scissors - need 1 per student 
  • 1 extra small container with lid - need 1 per student 
  • 1 everyday pencil
See you Friday at 6:30!
