Kindergarten - Week 10
This is our final week of art lessons for the Kindergarten classes! I want to thank the Kindergarteners for their sweet and friendly ways. I look forward to seeing all of them much more next year in the first grade classes!
This week we talked about how to draw things in relative sizes. That means drawing big things, medium things, small things, and tiny things. Often at this age, children will draw things in sizes that represent how important it is to the child. For instance, family drawings often show the artist (the child) as the biggest. The mother is usually the next in size, and the rest of the family gets even smaller.
Look for a drawing to come home that has items in the correct relative sizes. An elephant that is much bigger than the mouse. That sort of thing!
