I gave each child a piece of graph paper and told them to draw a basic shape on it, fairly large. I said they could trace one of their hands (as they did on APFK) or do another basic shape. Then I told them to use the squares in any way they liked to color in the picture. I told them that the example one used 2 colors of colored pencils and colored in a diagonal half of each square, but that they could do anything they liked.
Jack and Victoria traced their hands to start and Annalee drew a flower. They all went in their own directions with what they did next, which is how I think it ought to be! I loved the creativity in each one’s final result!
I love the little robot guy on top!
Annalee went in a sort of fabulous quilt direction. And yes, this was the day of the magic marker freckles!
This took Victoria forever! I love how colorful it is.
Next week’s theme is balance.
