Recently, my fifth graders have been reading stories about the "Wild West," so I thought this was the perfect time to create cowboy boots in art class. Judging by the wonderful results, I think my students enjoyed being "boot designers."
I began this project by showing my students lots of examples of cowboy boots. Cowboy boots come in many different styles and designs. I found many great examples of cowboy boots by just doing a search in Google. To create our cowboy boots, I had my students first draw their boot in pencil. After everything was drawn, they then outlined with a black crayon. Lastly, we used liquid watercolors to add color. This was a very simple project, but the results were quite wonderful. I definitely wish I owned a pair of cowboy boots (especially if they looked like one of these).
