When we think of Art, we often think of the Masters: Renoir, Monet, Picasso. However, each of us have a little artist inside – an artist which we often give free reign when we are young. I have many little artists in my kindergarten class. They love it when the paints come out – whether the paint is tempura or watercolour. The children had experimented making paper with the ECE and, instead of them taking the rough paper home unmarked, I thought they could paint on it with watercolours. Once the paint had dried, I mounted the artwork on some yellow card:
I liked how the yellow showed up the colours of their painting. With pleasure, I placed the paintings inside the frames:
I was pleased with the result. I helped the children gift wrap their work in tissue paper and they carried it home to give to their moms for Mother’s Day. I am sure this Kindergarten Art will grace many tables for years to come. And serve as a reminder to the children that they all have a little of the artist in them.
Do you allow your inner artist reign to create?
