Project Day: Painting a Story

Yesterday was the BEST Art Class EVER. Why? Because Grammie brought the paint. To kick of the Art Classes of 2012, yesterday's lesson was about telling a story with paint. Getting the kids to think of a story BEFORE putting paint to paper was the biggest challenge.
It was fun to see each child's individual interests taking shape on the paper.

The junior members got to play with water paint (mostly water) in their own class.

At the end of the lesson, each kid gave a "Picture Talk" to explain the story behind their painting. They took their reports pretty seriously - requesting attention and quiet from the chatting mommies.

(In case you are wondering, this painting is of animals in a forest)

Upon reflection, next time I will have them pick their favorite and only tell the story of one painting. Some of those little people were waxing overly eloquent! :)
