Oh how Kindergarten loves to paint!! We did a very controlled collaborative painting the first week of school...but this is the first time they've gone at it in a full fledged lesson! We are about 5 or 6 weeks into the school year now....so they've learned a great deal. They also are very confident with our fish/sea theme we've been working on this 9 weeks. After a demo & explanation of painting expectations & procedures...they students got to work!
I use the wide bottom tumbler cups from Dollar Tree/Dollar General(have had them for years and years). I only fill them about 3 or 4 inches full of water(in case of spills.
We use the "Biggie" watercolor sets with 4 colors. Tempera cakes would work also. It is more getting them use to holding a brush, rinsing out the brush, ...etc.
I do not do step by step exactly...I do a demo and then let them do it. I don't want all the pictures to look exactly the same...but I do believe in guidance for my kinders!!!
This girls fish is super fun..and very different from the others.
It is amazing how so precise some of the kids are at such a young age!
Sharing is caring!! Also...I know...I need to get new paints!!(get the refills!!..cuts down on cost)
IF YOU ALL HAVE ANY FEARS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT PAINTING WITH KINDERGARTEN...PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT OR CONTACT ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA!!
