6th grade snowmen

The students made paper mach snowmen. A good friend of mine and excellent art teacher (Hallie Spooner) has made these with her classes and loved them! She had the students paint them and I used model magic and markers to color the model magic. Both techniques work well. First, they rolled newspaper and then taped it together (challenging) then paper mached the entire thing and painted them with white paint. I used tempera and it cracked a bit but it looked snow "ish" and we decided we loved it that way!

  1. why do you think the tempera cracked? Sometimes that happens with our tempera and sometimes not. I can not figure out what makes it happen. Do you know?
