Fine Arts: Degas
This is one of the coolest ways I have ever seen someone explain how to draw the human figure using pipe cleaners, beads, dry erase board and markers. She gives you step-by-step instructions.
http://babbledabbledo.com/steam-project-tiny-dancers-homopolar-motor/ – a neat science project about homopolar motors. The figure they create is a ballerina. Use the next website to connect the science project to our artist Degas. http://www.arthistorykids.com/blog/2016/5/17/steam-dancers-and-degas-unit-study The science project calls for a 1/2″ x 1/8″ neodymium magnet. You can find these magnets at Walmart. You will also need 16 gauge copper wire, 1 AA battery, and a set of pliers with cutters on them. This is such a cool idea. I really suggest doing this experiment.
http://makingartfun.com/pdf/watercolor-degas.pdf – step-by-step instructions on how to sketch a ballerina and then using watercolors you could paint your picture. If you have little ones, I would print the picture onto water color paper and then just let them paint the picture.
