The children at the preschool are such amazing artists with great ideas! We work on a variety of projects, some with specific instructions on what the final image should look like...a flower, an instrument, an insect, etc. Its so fun to see how each child can take the same subject matter and make it uniquely their own!!
Other times the children can choose their own subject matter. Today, some of our older students wanted to use the watercolor paint and oil pastels. There were hearts, robots, golden pear trees, rainbows and much, much more! They loved the process of coloring or drawing with the oil pastels and then painting the watercolors on top. As they added the watercolors, they discovered they enjoyed watching the colors mix together and create a new shade as much as they enjoyed the final product. We just love giving the kids tools to express their creativity and then watching where they take them!
