Dragons in the art room!

Kindergarten artists painted whimsical dragons! We loved that there is no "right way" to draw a dragon.  We added sequins to give our dragons colorful scales and jewels.

Ten Circles, Five Lines by Kindergartners

Kindergarten artists were asked to create artwork using ten circles and five lines.  We discussed all of the ways they could use theses pieces to create unique works of art.  They painted with liquid watercolors.

Onomatopoeia Words Inspired by Roy Lichtenstien

Pop Art!
In the 1950s and 1960s, young British and American
artists made popular culture their subject matter. 
By incorporating logos, brand names, television and
cartoon characters, and other consumer products 
into their work, these artists tested the boundaries
between art and everyday life. 
Roy Lichtenstein was one of the originators of this 
new pop movement. Fascinated by printed mass 
media—particularly newspaper advertising and 
cartoon or comic book illustration—Lichtenstein
developed a style characterized by bold lines, bright
colors, dot patterns, and sometimes words.

The art of today is all
around us. 
Roy Lichtenstein
