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?
