Printable Projects - Week 5

Need a screen time break? Check out our Printable Projects series: a compilation of downloadable, printable art and writing resources for students in Elementary, Middle and High School.  The Eastern Iowa Arts Academy provided these projects to Cedar Rapids Community School District students through the meal distribution sites to families without internet access.  This is the fifth week of materials provided the week of May 25th. 

Penny Spinner Project for Elementary 

With a few simple materials, you'll be able to create this cool and colorful penny spinner.

Sensory Poetry for Elementary

K-5 students will get their imagination flowing with this sensory poem about their favorite food.

Providing support for encouraging creativity

These prompts are designed to draw out your students' creativity. Remember, there are no wrong answers! If your student has trouble getting started or gets stuck, ask questions and provide encouragement. Remember the responses to the prompts can be about a made up world of their own imagining. When your child has completed a project have them share it after dinner, or before bed time. A vital step in the art making process is sharing your work, which is key to fostering self-confidence and gives your student the opportunity to shine!

Textured Hand Drawing Challenge for Middle School

This unique challenge will help improve your skills with texture using only pencil and paper.

Providing support for encouraging creativity

While art making is inherently rewarding, the product is only part of the goal. Getting lost in the process just for the fun of it is valuable on its own. Remember, there are no wrong answers!
