Finster's Santa Came to School!
Howard Finster Santas are always one of my favorite projects. The kids always like creating their own version of Howard Finster's Folk Art Santa. We have posted on Howard Finster in the past. Click HERE! Howard Finster is from my home state, Georgia. He passed away in 2001, but his art lives on. For more information on Finster and his Paradise Garden, click HERE!
I re-introduced Howard Finster to the 6th graders. I had discussed folk art with them in their elementary art classes.
The kids penciled in their version of Howard's Santa.
The kids painted.
The kids touched up.
Here's a pretty cool version of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town".
