Kindergarten has been working on learning elements of art! Here they are using different stencils to create a picture of their choice while practicing the use of space
This week Kindergarten started working with the color wheel! We even made color wheel sea turtles and next week we’ll work on mixing colors!
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! 😍
