We’ve had sooo much fun with The Art Studio so far this month! X has learned the names of the famous artworks we’ve been studying, the artists who created them and even a bit about the countries the artists are from. But the most amazing development has been his enthusiasm and confidence in making his own art! I’ve never seen him so focused or proud of an art piece or craft. His artistic spirit is really thriving within this unit.
His powers of observation have really come to the front. He’s talking about texture, color and composition.
He’s also learned a great deal about color mixing and is getting really good at predicting what colors will result from his experiements.
The mixed media elements of each project have really kept them interesting. It’s also given us an opportunity to work on skills like cutting and glueing. They’re also a great added sensory experience!
I also REALLY appreciate how little prep this unit takes. We’ve had everything needed on hand and there hasn’t been much to get ready. Our busy summer days really need a quick and easy curriculum this month and Mother Goose Time definitely delivered!
I received this month’s Mother Goose Time curriculum free of charge in exchange for sharing our experience and my opinions. All content and opinions are 100% mine and truly honest.
