We started class this week with an Art History lesson – “The Madonna of the Book”, Botticelli, Early Italian Renaissance. We found Italy, the 5 oceans, the equator and the N. and S. Hemispheres on the globe. We also found several mountains that are quite bumpy on the globe. The young artists worked on their penguins. We reviewed “space” as an Element of Art. One penguin is smaller and in the background. The kids painted a snowy road for the penguins. They drew square and arched hats for the penguins. Of course we had to add decor to the hats. These are very fancy penguins:) We counted the pom poms and the shiny snowflakes they added to the hats. We love counting!!! We discussed “horizontal” and “vertical” during the lesson. These little ones are so cute together. They also LOVE Ms. Ronda’s cinnamon toast!
