And we're rockin our way through....Art Classes- Week 4

I saw this a couple of weeks ago at Paint Party Friday and was SO inspired to do a color theory lesson and 'prolly, I could have had my lil guys do it the way she does, but since we're just getting started on color theory, I thought we'd just stick to the really cool circles.  And of course, as I was doing the set up (i try to cram the equivalent of 3 lessons into 1 1/2 hours...) the word  DOTS stuck in my head...next thing I knew, I was outlining a "poem" for them the trace~ "We've got dots, lots and lots of dots..." around and around their papers for them to add color to add we mixed them.  It was an AWESOME lesson- THANK YOU Anne of My Giant Strawberry
Dots....

and MORE DOTS.....
We gots Lotsa DOTS..... of COLOR!



 And, next we started on ( like I said, we try to cram a LOT into an hour and a half!) finishing the backgrounds to the star painting and they turned out INCREDIBLE!!!!  Just like I knew they would...
Unfortunately, I only have the one photo for you this time, but there will be more next, I promise :)

In the meantime, they worked on self portraits to finish out their star paintings....



And finally, we made "ladders" for them to reach the sky with- you'll soon see what I mean-......but that's for next week!
and YES I know I'm so blessed to work with these new blooming talents!
TTFN,Stefny

Looks like you were all having a whale of a time. I used to d dots at school too when I was teaching, and it was something they all liked, big and small! Valerie
