Hi Art Scholars,
Art is so much more than creating something "right" or perfect. Art is about trying to create and enjoying the process. This amazing story shares the journey of one little boy as he searches for his joy in creating art. Please enjoy the story Ish by Peter Reynolds.
Happy Wednesday Art Scholars!
I have a fantastic art project for you today. We are going to be inspired by the book Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson. When we are done with our story please take out your purple crayon and draw where you would go if you were Harold.
Here's my drawing . . . a day at the beach with a big bowl of ice cream. Where will Harold take you? Please share your amazing drawings with us on Twitter @VAPA_CVESD
First let's check out this great information about Wassily Kandinsky.
Did you find his way of thinking about color interesting?
Now here's an art lesson inspired by Kandinsky's style.
a piece of paper
a crayon (or more)
some watercolor paints (or washable markers)
and a paint brush (or something to paint with like a q-tip)
Now, here's the link:
When you are finished with your project, please share with us on flip grid.
Art gives children an outlet to express themselves and an activity in which they can create things that they are proud of. When children create and share their art, they develop self-esteem from experiencing opportunities to make something unique, expressing their feelings and imagination, and receiving praise and critique from those around them.
