We started class by applying paint on both our canvas and paper surfaces.
While waiting for our canvas and paper paintings to dry, we collected and cut collage items, created patterns with colored pencils, made small pictures with pastels and created printing templates.
During our snack break, we read three books. Not a Box by Antoinette Portis was fun and playful, prompting a lot of laughter. Perfect Square by Michael Hall demonstrated the limitless possibilities of one particular shape. Henri's Scissors by Jeanette Winter provoked a lot of questions regarding Matisse's life, work and process.
We returned to our work, cutting and arranging our smaller collections onto our canvas and paper.
Tucker received a fair amount of attention too.
Thank you, Parents, for coordinating such a fantastic reunion.
Happy Art Making!
