Bikes by Joel

Great idea from ART with Mrs. Smith...

Joel Henriques
Artist and father living in Portland.
Author of "Made to Play, Handmade Toys and Crafts for Growing Imaginations"

Wants people to connect art and life...
"I want to give people something not only to look at, but to live with and be a part of."

Materials needed:
-Black construction paper
-White crayons
-Colored strips of construction paper (I pre-cut mine)

1.  Have the students draw a line 3/4 of the way down on their paper.  Below the line will be where you glue the colored paper and above the line will be where you draw the bike.
2.  We drew the bike, step by step; circles for the wheels, triangles for the bike frame...
3.  Once the bike is drawn, then students can glue the colored strips at the bottom.

Cute!  Contemporary!  Cool!
