I put a stack of construction paper in the middle of our kitchen table, gave the girls scissors and glue sticks and white cardstock, and told them to cut shapes to create a masterpiece. O(6) immediately decided to create a rainbow scene. E(3) loves to copy her sister, so she also decided to make a rainbow. E(3) had trouble cutting the way she wanted to, so she told me exactly what she wanted and I cut for her. She did all of her planning and glueing.
O(6)'s finished masterpiece. I think she did a beautiful job, and she was so proud to present her art to the Montessori class as an example before we did the activity with that group.
We have almost all of the Touch the Art books, and the girls LOVE them. These books are a wonderful introduction to art!

This is such a creative way to approach a study of Matisse.ReplyDelete
I understand where E is coming from, I see rainbows hills:) Good Job E and O!!
Sometimes my art is interpreted differently, the joys of art! Once I drew a sun, and a child told me I forgot to add the nose and the mouth. LOL.
Thank you for sharing.
