  • In class we were learning about textures and patterns. We looked at the patterns in the painting 7:27 Kindergarten and First Grade Paper Doll Chain

    In class we were learning about textures and patterns. We looked at the patterns in the painting "Good With Scissors." The kids had never seen a paper doll chain and wanted to make one. I think this is a great time to share this project with them. Materials you need are paper, scissors and crayons. First fold the paper two times to get three even sections. Second, draw your person (like a gingerbread man) on one side. Be sure the hands and feet are drawn over the edges. Next, slowly cut out the paper around the person, do not unfold it. Do not cut around the hand and feet, you need the paper to stay connected. Open your paper doll chain. Finally, think like a fashion designer and draw clothes on your paper dolls. Think of patterns, colors, shapes. Draw details on their faces, draw the hair. Outline your details so they will not get lost after you color it with crayon. Share your paper doll chain with friends and family! The online video is here https://safeshare.tv/x/ss5e8e356f257dd#

  • I walk around the block in my neighborhood and show you how an artist uses a sketchbook. Materials you need are a small sketchbook and pencil. If you do not have a sketchbook you can make one by folding paper down into a small book form. I see a swing and draw the lines that create a triangle shape of the swing and draw the tree it is in. Drawings in a sketchbook are meant to be done fast so you capture the idea. Next I walk to a birdhouse. I see the shape of the birdhouse and try to quickly draw the it in my sketchbook. Last, I see mushrooms in a neighbors yard. I look at them, I see that they are organic, free form shapes and make a quick drawing in my sketchbook of the mushrooms. Artists always carry a sketchbook with them to help them with drawing skills. 4:07 All students, An Artists Sketch Book

Artists always carry a sketchbook with them to help them with drawing skills and also help them capture ideas that inspire them from the world around them.

  • Practice holding a pencil, tracing lines and cutting paper with your Pre K student. Materials you will need are paper, pencil and scissors for your little one. Parents and caregivers, draw a dashed line from left to right. Next help your little one hold the pencil, let them try to trace over the dashed lines (sometimes they want to draw dashed lines as well, tell them to draw one line.) Last help them hold the scissors with the thumb through the small circle and the fingers through the large oval. Hold the paper flat and the scissors up right, help them squeeze the scissors, open and closed as they follow the lines.
