Thursday: The Importance of the Arts—Project from Great American Artists for Kids
I promised I would post our first project we completed from the book Great American Artsits for Kids by MaryAnn Kohl and Kim Solga so here it is!
We chose an artist from the seciont Early American Art named Mary Cassat who loved to paint pictures of mothers with their children. The girls enjoyed listening to the whole biography of the artist and looking at the other children’s Monoprints that were in the book.
Breakfast in Bed by Mary Cassatt
We created a Fingerpaint Monoprint by following the directions in the Young Child Box on the page.
Abby enjoyed telling everyone that day that she had “Mono Painted” and our masterpeices are hanging on our art wall for everyone to see.
