Kindergarteners have recently completed their first two projects of the year. We started with an old favorite, magic carpets created with crayon lines and watercolor paint resist. We added some foam shapes and practiced making tiny glue dots while discussing geometric and organic shapes. We finished them off with a fringe - great cutting skills practice.
Next, we drew two self-portraits - a head and shoulders view and a head to toe view. We always share a little something about ourselves in our portraits, like a favorite pet or activity. We used the tissue painting method to make our portraits colorful and fun.
Kindergarteners are loving learning about art and taking care of our work and art room!
