First Week of Art Class!

Wow, we have had a spectacular week! We are right into choice based art, and it is going amazingly well.

At both schools, we introduced the drawing center by doing a “draw around the room” activity. Each table had a different art supply or supplies for students to try, as well as some ideas for different techniques. Older students also watched a video explaining some of the changes in the art room, as well as introducing the activity.

After each large poster was drawn on and colored in, we peeled off the tape to discover some important messages.

The younger students were not left out! Though they had fewer drawing supplies (5 year olds are not quite ready for chalk pastels!), they still did some great materials explorations.

I am sure now, more than ever, that this switch to choice was the right one. I am so excited for this year!
