Bracelet Collage Art Journal Page

I like to encourage students to make art that spreads across two pages. The more entries that are tall or wide or even upside down, the better!
1. Students trace their hand and arm in pencil across two journal pages. Kinder and 1st graders may need help with this. The arm is traced with a thin black marker and colored in with skin color. My sample uses colored pencil, but crayons would work too.
2. Various rectangles are cut from the pattern paper and glued over the arm to look like bracelets. Boys could make one colorful band and add a paper circle to create their own watch.
3. I started with a writing prompt of “I like to wear _____.” Students filled in with whatever description worked for them. The words are written in pencil, filling up the page as much as possible, and traced in black marker. Lastly, the background is colored in as well.
4. Enter my Art Journal Giveaway. Just a few hours left!

I so enjoy your ideas! I just printed a bunch of analog clock faces to have my kids make these into watches and use this for math practice in answering 'what time is it when?' questions.
