extraordinary letters & numbers

Kindergarteners talked about what makes art special, and how to turn simple things into art.  We looked at some of Jasper Johns' pop art which uses letters and numbers as the subject of his painting.  We thought of ways to make ordinary "writing" into extraordinary art.  After learning to draw around a number/letter to make a shape, we experimented with a variety of materials to make it exciting: stencils, stickers, crayons and watercolor paint in resist, and yes, even sparkly glitter.  Extraordinary results!
