Today we had an art studio in our classroom, or so it seemed! We spent the afternoon listening to good music and painting trees in different seasons. Our artists were inspired by some paintings I showed them, then given a brief tour of the types of art supplies they could use, then pretty much turned loose! They worked hard to show their best effort on one project before going on to another.
The children used oil pastels, tempera paint, water color paint, and construction paper to create trees. They worked well together, encouraged each other, and I cannot even tell you what a fantastic and fast job they did cleaning up. We got two last minute papers that needed to be sent home, so I was stuffing folders twice, and they were finishing and cleaning up on their own. It was great! And every paintbrush was put back brush side up! Glue bottles were even closed. I think they they want to have this time again! Here are some pictures of our artists at work!
The purpose of this art time was to create trees that we would see in different seasons. It was also to work with new art materials, make choices, and to just have fun!

I hope you enjoyed our virtual art show!
Please be sure to check your child's folder for two important notices. One letter is from Mrs. Oglesby, and the other is a flyer for you to check your child's pictures from Freed Photography. Make-up picture day is tomorrow, so if you would like your child's picture to be retaken, please send me an e-mail so I can be sure they go when it's our turn.
Have a nice evening!
