Scarlett and Andrew

Scarlett and I welcomed Andrew to the studio this week. It was his first lesson. To start class, the artists created their own color wheel. I only used the primary colors. Scarlett and Andrew made their own secondary colors. I reviewed the colors several times. They were so cute when they realized they had made their own purple, orange and green! I introduced their project to them – molas from Mexico. I showed them some real molas that I have in the studio. We first found Wichita Falls. I emphasized that WF is in Texas!!! Yay!!! We found ┬áMexico on my globe. We also found all 5 oceans. The kids enjoyed feeling the mountains all over the world. The artists decided which animals they were going to use in their mola. Scarlett decided to draw a bunny. Andrew decided on a moose. I use printed coloring pages for the kids to look at while they draw. They do not trace. I discussed the basic shapes for drawing. Andrew drew his moose and Scarlett her bunny. The artists will decorate their animals with designed patterns. The patterns will be colored with Prismas. For the background the artists will create a pattern with construction paper. Enjoy the pics:)
