This week, it turned out that we stumbled into another theme of the week, this time for both Cadence (now 5) and Piper (2). It started when both girls were home with my mom last Wednesday and they cut pictures from magazines to make a giant collage. Then, at school, Cadence's teacher shared a bit of the artwork of Norman Rockwell. Then, we were stuck inside during a heavy rainstorm and had an art party where both girls produced several works of art using different mediums.
Here's the plan for a week of art activities:
Reading: Fancy Nancy, Aspiring Artist by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser, Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh, The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt
Creating: a massive collage, a woven sun inspired by this one at Nurture Store, a snow window sticky picture (see pics below), dot marker pictures, sticker pictures, and salted watercolor paintings
Watching: Blue's Clues: Adventures in Art, Barney: Now I Know my ABCs (the characters have an art show)
