Kindergarten Art Show Work

I teach 5 classes of Kindergarten. Some of the pictures didn't turn out all all that great, so here are just a few. I had introduced this lesson a few weeks ago to you all. However, seeing the paintings all together is something else!! I mounted the work on black as not to take away from the color of their paintings. I had many parents say they planned on framing their child's work.

  2. The students had to draw 6 "wavey" lines from a center dot. From there they selected a plate of paint that I had pre poured. There were many options for them to select from...but I do recommend prepouring so it cuts down on time. Otherwise...kinderbabies can eat up your time selecting colors..plus they may select colors that mix to brown. white was one of the colors so they could do a tint of the colors.
