Hello My Amazing Artists!
Last week was a frenzy of activity as the artists finished their Todd Parr inspired Self Portraits... and just in time for Open House. They are amazing - and hanging in the lobby of the school.
The artists had created a background using their knowledge of mixing colors. Then they cut out: head, ears, and extra details. We used collage techniques to assemble these masterpiece self portraits.

Meanwhile in kindergarten... the littlest artists were exploring printmaking using circle shapes. What happens when you overlap? How can you use each stamp? What if you dip in more than one color? Lots of exploring going on!
