Kindergarten artists learned many things in art the past week and we made two masterpieces. We read "Bridget's Beret," the story of a girl who creates masterpiece drawings and thinks that her beret is the reason she can draw well. We have been talking about lines. We created a really fun drawing with lots of different cartoon faces using only lines--horizontal, vertical, diagonal,  zig-zag, wavy and curly. Hopefully you saw this packet come home and had fun talking about it with your student.
This week we are using those lines and learning the difference between two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork. We are creating a paper sculpture using strips of paper and recreating our all of our lines from last week, but in 3-D. Should be fun!
