We kicked off the class with a YouTube Video. If you have not discovered Art With Mati & Dada.....GO CHECK IT OUT NOW!!! They are short yet informative! Make sure you preview first..there may be a couple that you might not feel comfortable showing your students. The Kandinsky video is great!!
We then looked at several works by Kandinsky, and I allowed my kindergarten students to make observations about what they saw. (The little ones are so amazing in their responses!!!)
After I reviewed painting "rules/procedures", I started playing some instrumental music....passed out supplies...and let the students begin. It was a magical time in the art room.
HERE IS A VIDEO OF A STUDENT WORKING
HERE ARE SOME WORKS IN PROGRESS
