Break for the Artists

Our last co-op meeting for this school year was Tuesday. As much as we enjoy co-op, it will be nice to have a break for the last month of school. The kids always get gym and art through our co-op and they all really enjoyed art this year.

Sissy and Peanut didDiscovering Great Artists . This is a great program that takes various artists, explains a bit about them and their style of art and then the children try to create art in a similar medium. They experimented with paint, ink chalks,

Sweet Baby was lucky enough to do Storybook Art in which the teacher reads a children's storybook to the kids and then they create a picture using similar mediums as the illustrator did in the book. You can see that Sweet Baby is holding up her rendition of a caterpillar from The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. This particular program is so sweet that the kindergartners and first graders will be doing it again next year!
