Olympic Rings

For the first project with my new kinders, I decided to be brave and get out the paint!  They LOVED this stamping project.  We used paper towel tubes that I cut smaller to create the Olympic Rings.  Students had to identify the 5 colors of the rings and the circle shape.  This was also the prefect project to introduce the "do's & don'ts" of painting in art class.  They all did a fantastic job! Check out some of their work below.

The Dot

Welcome back students!  I'm so excited to begin my 9th year of teaching!  Where has the time gone?! 

For the first week of art classes, we had just enough time for a mini art project after we reviewed the art room rules.  Students listened to the story, "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds and then created their own dot-inspired artwork. Check out some of their creations below!
