Chinese Dragons

Third graders learned about Asian Art before we went on break. They viewed a power point presentation on the history of Chinese dragons. It was very interesting to learn all the different types of dragons that there are in the Chinese culture. Students made these Chinese dragon sculptures from egg carton cups. I put out the call for egg cartons to be brought in by my students, and boy did they respond! I'm overflowing with egg cartons now, but good to know they are willing to help out their art teacher when in need:) Students punched holes in the cups first, then painted. The second class we assembled and added the details. They turned out awesome!
