Kindergarten Hearts

Kindergarten artists looked at several different images. Some were paintings, some photographs and some were cartoons. We reviewed what a background was and then discussed foreground. A background is far away while the foreground is up close. Following directions carefully, we divided our papers into six squares and traced a heart in each square. We then talked again about texture and drew a texture in the background of one square and then drew the same texture in the foreground of the adjacent square. The result is that they are opposites. Using paint dabblers, we colored the foreground and background, in the same manner, reversing foreground and background.
