The kinders have the drawing, collage, and modeling clay centers open. And I've begun introducing watercolors to them as well! These kids love the collage materials, especially the staplers and hole punches. It's wonderful to see the spontaneous way they approach their work. These are artists unconstrained by the pressure to create "SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL".
The other classes have more centers available:
- weaving with three larger wooden looms, and lots of small handmade cardboard looms
- watercolors and tempera paint
- pen and ink
I am seeing genuine artmaking happening in these groups.
