And now it's Summer....
In our first weeks of Summer camp we spend a lot of time getting to know each other, learning the classroom rules and exploring Art basics. We will be discovering various mediums and learning how to use the tools to express ourselves through those mediums.
We started out doing a red color activity which allowed the children to experience smaller paint brushes. They discoverd that paint brushes can make thin lines and fat lines, they can be straight or wiggly.
While exploring yellow the children practiced scissor and gluing skills making beautiful bright "collages".
We used the light table to find out for ourselves what color is created when we put red and yellow together.
The children used their strong hands to manipulate and shape blue clay. They added rocks for additional texture discovery.
