Oil Pastel Zoom In (O'Keeffe) - 5(ish) Minute Art Lessons


THIS IS A CLASSIC!  I got tired of teaching the same thing every year, but I still wanted my students to learn about the magic that this art project holds, so I made this video for myself first.  Now I am sharing it with you so you can skip forward to the fun part of helping kids zoom in and make things HUGE!!  Covering big areas of paper with oil pastel and getting dirty making it all have smooth fades.  It is going to be great, enjoy!

   The amazing thing about a 5 minute art lesson is that while they all zone into it as if they were staring at a Fortnite video on their phones you can go around the quiet room and see how they are doing. This offers a chance for formative assessment and targeted small group instruction. They will have questions after the videos are over, they always do, but this time they will be about the art project.

   The reason these videos are the deal of a lifetime is that you never have to buy them again. You could buy a video and use it in your first year to help with planning and classroom management and still have it available to you in your 35th year when you don't know how to get the kids to stop riding their hoverboards around the classroom. :)

   Just Imagine a world where instead of repeating yourself you could just say "...find it in the video."
