Winter Wildlife for the Young at Art
Winter animals love to play, hide, hunt, and frolic in the snow. Let’s think about owls, penguins, reindeer, and walruses and what makes each creature instantly recognizable. Projects will involve cutting, gluing, painting, printing, and working with Model Magic. Your young artist can keep their creations or turn them into gifts!
Lisa Kaija received her BA in Art History at Dartmouth College and her K-6 General Education/Visual Arts teaching certification through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute. During the last thirty years, she taught all subjects in grades K-4 and some subjects in grade 5-6 in various Upper Valley public and private schools. She has trained mid-life career changers to become teachers and raised five children with her husband, Kevin. Lisa revels in teaching art. The question she dodges most often is “Are you an artist?,” since she considers herself a teacher first and an artist second, and elementary art teachers need to know a little about a lot of different art forms. She thrives on challenges and enjoys being creative with people of any age.
