The James Rizzi Bird Jumped Over the James Rizzi Moon
Second Graders learned a little about James Rizzi, landscapes, and perspective in this project.
Introduce James Rizzi to the kids
Get kids to draw a hilly landscape.
Discuss that things in the distance are smaller and things in the foreground will be bigger.
Kids draw pumpkins sprinkled on the hills using this concept.
Kids draw a James Rizzi moon and bird.
Next week, the kids painted their projects.
I think the kids were exposed to several important aspects of art. I hope you will try this project with your kids soon.
Here is a song about the Man on the Moon by R.E.M.
