Umbrella Art from Thailand

My daughter finally completed her Level 1 ArtAchieve projects. We reviewed this curriculum last year in May. Thankfully, the projects were finished before our subscription expired but it was cutting it close. The Umbrella from Thailand project was one of the toughest projects in Level 1 for Alyssa. This lesson was meant for children in Grades 1 and up. We think it is more suitable for children in 3rd grade and up.

Children learn how to utilize paintbrush strokes to create many different textures. First, she practiced creating a texture chart on manila paper. Then, she chose her acrylic paint colors and watered them down. Next, she designed her umbrella and painted it.

She really enjoys hearing about other countries and their culture. She watched the video lesson instead of using the PowerPoint lesson. Alyssa completed this lesson in one sitting, but the teacher recommends breaking the lesson up over three days for younger children. Time was needed for the first coat to dry. This particular lesson also ties in Literature, Geography, and facts about Elephants.
