We had such a fun week expressing our artistic side. We learned about Monett and Picasso. We talked about colors and learned about color mixing. We read some fun color and art books… We read Ish, The Dot, Bear Sees Colors, Beautiful Oops, and Quiet Bunny’s Many Colors. On Monday we learned about Monett and made our own Monett inspired painting.
Tuesday we read the book Ish. This book celebrates all art abilities! We drew pictures and explored different drawing materials. We used markers, crayons and chalk to draw.
Wednesday we painted on an artist canvas… they turned out beautiful!
Thursday we read The Dot and made our own dot art.
Friday we learned about Picasso and made our own Picasso inspired artwork. They started with a piece of construction paper color of their choice, next they cut up a picture of themselves, and finally glued their pieces on to make a really cool piece of art. I love how this project turned out!
