Hatley and Cinco

Hatley and Cinco were excited to come into the studio this week. Last week they were a little hesitant but not this week. We started class by rolling 2 primary colors. I use paper towel cardboard rolls.  I put yellow and blue dabs of paint on a piece of paper. Of course this is after we reviewed what colors we were using. I showed Hatley and Cinco how to roll the paint. They were amazed when they created GREEN!!! Yay! Then we had to rub the paint with our hands and add some handprints! We had a short Art History lesson – “Madonna of the Book” by Botticelli. We identified Jesus and Mary. Next I cut out the 5 basic shapes from some thin cardboard. I taped the shapes down to a pice of paper. I demonstrated how to use sponges and dab the paint on and around the shapes. After taking the shapes off we had more shapes! On all the projects and activities we do in class I help the young artists write their names. We looked at “Tiger in a Thunderstorm” by Rousseau again. I discussed the “variety” of plants. We started drawing their Jazzy Jungle Cats. I helped with the drawing. We counted the legs several times:) Enjoy the pic:)
