I do a lot of abstract art with the littles. They are better at making "lines, shapes, and colors" than they are at making realistic subjects.
So for our painting lesson, we looked at the work of Kandinsky and talked about Variety. We learned the sign language for Variety, Line, Shape, and Color, and we painted like super artists. This week we took the paintings and added even more variety by using skinny markers in the white spaces. I LOVE THE RESULTS:
