Spring Colors and Little Hands: Painting Murals with Pre-Schoolers



This week my teaching artist friend Renee and I had the privilege of returning to visit a Pre-K Classroom at Fletcher Elementary for a mural project with the Arts Council of  Chautauqua County.We are working on two board murals about 2X6 feet in size. One board is a life-cycle study and the other is the four seasons.


Here is our progress thus far. The students that are working on this project are only 4 years old and there are about 17 students in each of the two classes. This kind of teaching keeps an instructor on their toes and gives us a good dose of cute as well.

Next week, we'll return to wrap up the project with these two groups of pre-schoolers. 
Isn't it amazing what little ones can accomplish with a little helping hand?

What an amazing opportunity...to create with such free souls. How awesome for you and for them.
And how nice to reconnect after an upside down computer moment.
Silly things....
