Kindergarten, Art Cafe, Ms. Slomowitz

By in ,

We started out by introducing ourselves in the “All about Me” unit through Self Portraits. We read and looked at the illustrations in I like myself by Karen Beaumont. Our young artists enjoyed using drawing themselves.

Our Art curriculum is based on the Elements and Principles of Art and Design. Our first element of art and Design this year is line. We started exploring the different kind of lines that we know in art-straight, curvy, zigzag, wiggly worm, spiral line. We drew (in pencil) different lines under each other and then we painted in tempera in different colors over our pencil drawings. Once this is dry, we will paint over our lines and add giant wobbly eyes to create line monsters.

We have also read the book Pete the cat-the wheels on the bus by James Dean and learnt to draw the lines to create shapes of Pete the cat. Kindergarten students then drew and colored Pete in their own choice of markers.
