We are gearing up to do some work on self portraits, but before we actually draw ourselves we are first going to talk about what is actually on our faces. We have started that conversation with collage. We have been collaging with paper, natural items and found items (fake flowers, buttons, beads, etc.) We have also looked at artists who use collage to tell stories. Eric Carle is a favorite. I am sure we will continue to use collage as a medium to express ourselves all year. Here are your conversation starters for today:
“Ask Me About”
How was library? What book did you choose?
How is your new job going this week?
Did you start working on a new creation today? Did you choose to add paint to your creation at the painting station?
