Beautiful posture while drawing the worm house.

Even Pre-K likes to fingerpaint. Working here after
working on a detailed drawing in their sketchbooks.

"It's flowers"

"It's a worm house"

"Look, I made black!"
So much learning goes on through personal choice. The
class meets at a central table when they enter the room. We exchange ideas and then
get to work. For the last few months the 3s, 4s and K have been drawing
in a sketch book that they each made. We have
drawn from life and memory.

"This is for my Mom" I hear this quite often.
Even though Mom is not in the classroom, she is
always remembered.

The Young twos worked on a suncatcher. Moving
around the room ,they worked at the newly placed
tabletop easel. This is yet another creative place that
gets them to stand using their creative self and muscles.

Layers of color tissue paper and water on board were
exciting the younger artists this week. They saw how colors changed
when they overlapped and the water left a stain on the
board if they lifted the paper up. I encourage the
artists to stand up while they work. This increases the strength of
their core as well as bulding the ever important arm muscles
for future writing skills.
