Last week was all about Cave Art! This two day project included creating stamps from model magic and drawing with new materials. Exploring lines and shapes and even tracing our hands with craypas and pastels. Our Mini Adventurers finished the day “painting” cave art animals with natural elements:
Our 2 year old Art Adventurers jumped right into curves, zigzags and straight lines in last week’s project. Continuing to develop those fine and gross motor skills, we played with crayons and liquid watercolor to create these “magical” wax resist watercolor paintings.
Try it at home! All you need are crayons, watercolor paints and a brush. Be specific: Feel what a straight line does, how the body movements change with a curved line or spiral, or what it takes to actually make a zigzag (lots of self control, starting and stoping!) Make an abstract drawing, overlapping lines, or a spooky scene for the Halloween festivities for older children!
