This is a great lesson to teach the colorwheel, reinforce cutting and pasting skills and sharpen color observation and recognition. I did this lesson with my Kinders at the at end of the school year. They had a whole year to become familiar with cutting, pasting and sorting, so they were quite capable of understanding and completing this project. Allow two 40-minute class times.
Joan Miro -The focus here is creating lines that form shapes and being able to express yourself through line and color. It’s really empowering for children to create a work of art that resembles nothing familiar.
Monster Creations-Inspired by Barbara Jean Hicks' book Monsters Don't Eat Broccoli. The skyscraper background is crayon resist with watercolors. The monsters are drawn with crayon/oil pastel and stamped with toilet paper rolls. Cut out the monsters and glue them onto the skyscraper background.
