Welcome to the Carpenter Art Room

Hello! Welcome to the Carpenter Art Room Blog. I will be posting Art from my Elementary Students as well as awesome resources for Art.

Below you will find a list of art websites for Elementary Students.

Art Websites For Elementary Students

Contains a nice variety of fun and educational artistic activities for grades 1 through 5.

online. Also includes graphic step-by-step instructions on how to draw cartoons, online games you 
can play, and crafts.

Color Matters
Budding artists and anyone interested in color will want to see how color affects our mind and body, 
its use in design and art, plus lots more. Explains additive and subtractive color systems, how the eye 
sees colors, and how other cultures view and use colors.

Haring Kids
Artist Keith Haring was devoted to kids. At this site, he shares his vision of art with them and inspires 
them to discover their own creative side. Activities include games, puzzles, pictures to color, stories and 
more. Lesson plans for each section are available to teachers.

Inside Art
A game which explores a painting from the inside out. You 'escape' from the painting after answering 
'Who? / What? / Where? / How? ' questions.

You'll find lots of great ideas for quality art and craft projects at KinderArt. Be sure to check out the 
sections for younger children, and seasonal crafts too!
