This week Pre-K and Preppers worked on using our warm and cool colors separately while also using different type of mediums. They learned that warm colors are yellow, red, and orange making our cool colors green, blue, and purple. We also discussed what “medium” means: materials used to create a work of Art. This week we used paint, colored pencils, and markers!
We got into the spirit of celebrating 4th of July by coloring a picture using red and blue then created fireworks on their page! To create the fireworks, we taped bendy straws together then dipped the bent part into paint and pressed it onto the paper, creating the look of a firework!
Preppers have been reading “the very hungry caterpillar” and creating art to go along with it! This particular day, Preppers got to see and feel the various foods listed in the book. They were invited to draw their favorite foods on their paper!
Preppers were given the invitation to explore painting with watercolors. They all loved to experiment with mixing colors on their pictures!
Preppers and pre-k today practicing using scissors to cut various types of lines and shapes!
Preppers talked about how we can paint with many different materials, not just paintbrushes. They demonstrated this by painting St. Patrick’s day pictures with feathers and green paint!!
After a brief discussion on Henri Matisse and collages, preppers and Pre-K created Matisse inspired collages. Check out their finished work in the hallway this week! 😊
