Joys of the Art Room

I LOVE the happy clouds.
Something about a box of oil pastels that causes a flutter in even the youngest of hearts.

Kindergarten is working with space and how we use some of our other elements of art (in particular line and shape) to fill a space. We also learned the terms landscape and cityscape and viewed some examples. We talked about the sights, sounds, and smells of the cities that we had seen. We all agreed that there was a lot of crowded space in the 
city.


We set out to fill our space with a cityscape and used oil pastels to add another element of art, color. This was, for most students, the first time they had used oil pastels and were amazed at how easily the pastels colored. "This is awesome!" "Where can I get these?" "The lighter the color, the better it shows up on the dark paper!" "Can we use these again?" These remarks were like music to my ears.
