The Week of the Young Child: Artsy Thursday
Our children just love to create. At Good Shepherd, they unleash their imaginations on a daily basis . Art is their vehicle to express themselves, refine motor skills, and explore materials and ideas. In celebration of Artsy Thursday:
The T/Th/F 3's further explored the use of small cups and created their own cup objects by taping, stapling, and/or using pipe cleaners to construct and secure.
The M/W/Th 3's made beautiful paintings.
The 5-day 3's made vases for their paper flowers and made a robot. See the plan (photo) that a child drew of how the robot should look. They spent a lot of time putting ping pong balls down the robot's tubes and problem solved when the tubes became loose.
One 4's class used watercolors, finger paints and other materials to create works of art.
One 4's class used bio water color on coffee filters to create color and patterns. They will become butterflies when they dry.
In addition, the children pursued their regular artistic endeavors.
