Incredible Art from Precious Hands
This year, we decided, we would do things differently, learning from the past year that paint and grout and kids don't mix well.
After meeting with our wonderful art teacher, we decided to create square paper collages, that way each child's artwork would be highlighted on a 3" x 3" square of paper. Ms. Mason came up with the idea of doing a shape per grade. For example, kindergarten would use rectangles as their shape, fourth grade would use hearts and so on. Each kid had one 3" x 3" square to interpret their shape. The results were incredible and so varied!!! Here are some examples.
2nd grade - squares
3rd grade - Organic shapes:
Finally, 5th grade - stars: (we don't have K and 1st yet)
The next step: a few of us are gathering at my house to artistically arrange these shapes on poster board and then frame them for auction. We will have two framed works of art per grade and they will be sold as a set. We hope that parents will bid high because these are truly one-of-a-kind works of art that come from great little minds.
Stay tuned for the final framed results in a few weeks.
