1/11/16 – Artistic Extravaganza
Children will explore their creative sides through three artistically minded activities. First, they will pair up, and be given one minute to carefully observe their partner’s facial features. Then they will turn around, and be given five minutes to paint a portrait of their partner. After that, they will try their hands at copying great works of art in less than five minutes apiece. Finally, they will make watercolor silhouette prints using pasteboard cutouts of animals.
