Need a creative bulletin board for the Chinese New Year or Spring Festival? Imagine these spectacular fans in your hallway along with one of the two included writing prompts. Need a no fuss, last minute art sub plan?
This art lesson is perfect for elementary teachers wanting to learn how to paint on a budget with markers (yes, markers!). Step-by-step picture directions are given for how to transfer the template to drawing paper and fill it in with designs. Choose between a fun roll a dice game to select patterns. Or give them the "You Pick" page to let them select their own patterns.
If you're short on time, simply have your students design directly onto the photocopied fan template using colored pencils, crayons, or markers. The included PowerPoint presentation with close-up, detailed photos will guide them from start to finish to create a beautiful project.
Are you going to be absent and need a last minute Chinese New Year art lesson for the substitute? Do you need a calm, indoor recess activity? Are you a classroom teacher who has to teach your own art and you're short on ideas? In search of an activity for a remote learning or distance learning situation?
Fill up your art sub plan folder with these engaging, no-prep art projects. Once your students know how to play the game, they're easy to leave with a sub! Simply create a small sub tub in your room with drawing paper and markers. And leave copies of the game in a labeled folder inside the tub along with some dice.
Are you trying to cultivate self-reliance in your classroom? This Chinese fan art game makes for the best and most productive early finisher activity for your students.
You can set up a choice-based art center where students select an activity amongst different ones. Print out the game board and directions back to back, file them in labeled folders, and let them pick what they'd like to create. This project is similar to a directed drawing activity in which students are guided through the art process.
If you're a teacher looking for a differentiated art lesson that boosts independent thinking, problem-solving, and skill-acquisition, this Chinese New Year project will do the trick. Despite students selecting designs from the same game board, the outcome of each project is unique to the creator.
There are a few tricks that your students can use to speed things along in the design process. I teach my students a fun transfer technique to copy a design repeatedly (5:11 into the video). And I show them how they can use an old CD or plastic takeout lid (7:55 into the video) to act as a paint palette if they need more color.
