K-2 Alex Wilhite Project

My American Sign Language and Art class looked at Alex Wilhite’s oil paintings while learning how to describe the weather in ASL. They:

  1. chose what kind of weather they wanted to draw
  2. drew clouds and landscape in pencil
  3. masked the clouds with carefully torn masking tape
  4. filled in the sky with more than one color that matched the sort of weather they wanted to describe
  5. filled in the ground with more than one color as well – they were encouraged to look at Wilhite’s paintings for ideas on how to use the colors
  6. lifted the masking tape off to reveal their fluffy clouds

I think they did just fine.
