Kinder Jasper Johns Paintings
Jasper Johns is the artist Kinder students are studying. We looked at his number and alphabet paintings closely, and talked about all the places that we see numbers and letters everyday: street signs, books, billboards, computers, classrooms, inside and outside cars, and in our homes. Students then choose numbers or letters to put in their own drawings. We practiced painting four different colors inside each letter or number box, then we used oil pastels and tempera paint for our final designs. The paintings are amazing and will be displayed in this year's School-wide Art Show in April!
