Kinder artists study TEXTURE and FREE FORM SHAPES!

Kinder art students learned all about free form shapes.  We talked about how most free form shapes come from nature, and concentrated on the different shapes of leaves.  Students did a texture rubbing of different leaves with crayons, and filled their entire papers.  The next day, students learned how to paint carefully to take care of their brushes.  Students added a different color of paint to each leaf, so that each leaf now had two different colors.  Students were amazed at how the waxy crayon leaves resisted the wet paint! Students created beautiful, abstract works of art with the free form shaped leaves!
