As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing things for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children.
Our theme this week from Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) is Art in France and more specifically texture in art.
We learned about the Eiffel tower and looked at a video of the Louver Museum. Today's lesson is Pointillism and the art piece is George Seurat's painting Sunday in the Park.
We had a great time making our own pointillism books using cotton swabs and paint. They said that painting with dots feels very different than painting with big strokes of a brush.
The next day, we made circle spirals out of paper plates and we decorated them with a variety of different shapes!
Another favorite this week from Experience Preschool was learning about Monet’s flowers.
We recreated his famous painting, we also glued strips of blue and red paper to the shape of France.
Lastly, we traced the shapes of nature items because he is known for his nature paintings.
Not only have the children enjoyed exploring famous artists, but they've also had a wonderful time practicing fine motor skills while making their own versions of the famous painting we've learned about.
