3rd Grade Heather Galler Folk Art Snowmen

3rd Grade artists are learning about the contemporary artist Heather Galler who is a folk artist (meaning that she is self-taught!). She loved using lots of patterns and chose topics to paint that were important in her life.

Since we are in the thick of winter and many of us are enjoying making snowmen outside. So, we created this adorable snowmen with watercolor paint, sticks, twine, glitter, and even pine cones!

Learning Goals:
Students will learn about the life and art of Heather Galler
Students will be able to retell what a folk artist is
Students will practice with tying a knot
Students will use various patterns in their snowmen
Students will design a unique snowman with it's own personality
