Van Gogh Sunflowers inspired paintings…

The children have been learning about the life of Van Gogh through this fun children’s story, “Van Gogh and the sunflowers”, by Laurence Anholt. We also looked at many photos of sunflowers, fields of sunflowers and Van Gogh’s many still life paintings.

I also demonstrated how to paint a vase filled with flowers, which they loved seeing and creating.

Enjoy the beautiful paintings…

Collaborative Watercolor Banner

We are working on making a banner to hang in the outdoor play area and preschool lobby. It’s a wonderful piece that not only displays whimsical colors but also allows us to showcase everyone’s artwork together and demonstrate collaboration. There will be three large hanging banners and we can’t wait to display them!

Learning About Pop Art & Andy Warhol

This week I started the series of lessons of “Meet the Masters”. We will be learning about different artists and the impact they made on art history. I wanted to start the new year with a “Pop of Color.” Andy Warhol was an American artist who started the movement of Pop Art in the 60’s was a commercial illustrator and producer and he made screen printed art pieces. We looked at several of his prints but specifically “Flower, 1964”. The students then painted their own take on that piece. -Mrs. Monica
