This trimester the Kindergartners were having lots of fun in Ms. Bruce’s art class. They drew and then painted with watercolor either a robot or a monster. They discussed perspective and drawing big. At this age kids tend to draw very small and think they are filling the page but they aren’t. So they talked about maybe not even showing two or three full eyes. Maybe they were so close that one eye even went off the page. They didn’t want to show the body because they were so close they were just focused on the details in the face, neck and maybe shoulders. They talked about using just two colors (very challenging for them) but in using fewer colors they were able to create contrast and make their robots or monsters really stand out.
