Valentine's Day Artwork

Wow, I have been hibernating ! No posts at all for a whole month :) Anyway, we are back!

Jim Dine... such a popular artist for the month of February, in case you are not familiar with his work, google him. I did have print outs for the children to look at and they decided on their favorite style, not to copy though... never encourage that :) they had a limited palette of colors to work with and sponges instead of paintbrushes. So proud of the final results!

Here are the kiddo's own Jim Dine-style Valentine creations, enjoy !

Monet's Water Lilies

Over the course of the last few classes, the little ones got to learn about another one of the greatest artists- Claude Monet.... we looked at his work, discussed what he may have liked and how he painted and of course painted one of his very famous "Water Lilies"

Enjoy their completed works !!! (and initial picture of them at their easles just starting out)
