More Kids' Art!
I Just wanted to share the last three projects we did this week. We did a Claude Monet study on cotton using drawing chalk and milk to set. We've studied Monet before but I find that impressionism draws everyone into art. Kandisky was our focus for the next day. We studies simple shapes and color schemes. The kids were very upset with me that I made them work only in their chosen colors! Still they were all surprised when simple shapes such as circle and squares ended up looking like art. We finished with the fanciful world of Joan Miro which everyone loved. We used watercolors again since they lent themselves nicely to the project with their bright colors. The kids just loved to draw stick figures and not worry about too much detail. All in all it was just a great week!
I'm off for the next two weeks to Quilting by the Lake. I'm sure I'll blog about it when I get back!
