The Miniature Art Show

Our theme at work this week was "Like the Artists". Over the past five days we spent time looking at famous paintings and learning about all of the ways we can create art. We experimented with photography, painting, mosaic, collage, and chalk. The kids loved making replica Monets, painting textured pieces like Eric Carle, copying Van Gogh's Starry Night, and taping/pasting pieces of the Mona Lisa together (over and over and over!)

Today we set up the children's very first art exhibition to display all of their pieces. It was so much fun watching them stand and stare at the wall full of their creations and each tiny finger point led to the cutest conversations.

When I started at my old school, I was in the 1-2 year old room. I was in charge of art.. so I printed out pictures of famous paintings in b/w. Then we gave the kids these paint brushes that had paint in them.. perfect for the real little ones! It sounds weird.. but they looked SO cute!

Then I moved up in age and did stuff similar to yours! You are so creative! :)
