This week Ms. Cook wrapped up her work with the children’s exploration with painting. Throughout this semester the children have been working very hard on finding ways of moving their bodies to manipulate paint within a picture.
From the parents help with paintings during curriculum night, the students were able to see a variety of ways they are able to paint by using all the lines we have been studying. After describing these pictures the students were able to come up with ideas of their own to put into their works. Some students made a house out of lines and dots. Another student made a picture out of a rocket ship. There were also flowers made by the students and some clouds.
From this the children began coming up with their own ideas of what they would like to paint and how they can use our lines to make these pictures. This project will be continued during the next semester with the students to further enhance their knowledge of lines and how they are used to create works of art.
