Kindergarten learned about the difference between geometric and organic shapes. After reviewing what they’ve learned, they got to make their own “lava lamps”. They poured water and vegetable oil together in a water bottle. Then they pour salt into the bottle and watched the organic shapes “dance”!
Kindergarteners are learning to paint what they see 👀. They learned that this is called a stiff life! They carefully observed flowers in a vase and painted the details that they saw!
Kindergarteners learned about an american artist today, Keith Haring. They learned about the interesting style of graffiti. They got to pose and trace their bodies to create haring style “kindergarteners”.
Kindergarteners have been all about abstract art lately! We have been looking at different abstract artists and their work, and practicing our own abstract art. Today, we learned that art is a lot like science, because we get to experiment! We learned the technique of “paint pouring” to create a mixture of colors in an abstract way. They loved it!!
Pre-k and Kindergarten have been learning about the artist Wayne Thiebaud. We enjoyed looking at his art that was inspired by everyday things in life! We loved that he create yummy looking “food” art! Our kindergartners created trinket bowls shaped like cupcakes! I can’t even handle the cuteness of these! 😍
Kindergarten reviewed what sculptures are today. After listening to the story of Harold and The Purple Crayon, they started on their own yarn sculptures, inspired by Harold himself! We are patiently waiting to see what they look like when they dry!
Kindergartners are practicing their paper weaving skills this week!
