Kindergarten artists are learning how to use art supplies and over the past few weeks we have experimented with glue. We have used glue sponges, made glue dots, and drawn lines with glue. Finally we created "rainbow fish" with glue and oil pastels. You can look at all the "rainbow fish" on our Artsonia online art gallery.
Kindergarten artists started a study on self-portraits today. After discussing how we are each uniquely made by God and looking at self-portraits by Vincent Van Gogh, students used mirrors to carefully observe their own facial features. These two artists enjoyed comparing their eyes, skin, hair, and smiles. For more on this lesson click here.
Over the past few weeks Kindergarten artists have learned about artist and author Eric Carle, ladybugs, and explored collage making. I love how their ladybugs turned out.
