According to Dr. Seuss... There's No Place Like Space, and I quite agree! The Picassos took in this educational video on the Solar System and then we got down to creating our version of space... collage style!
I got them to draw out their planets first and they could either draw and colour a real planet or design one of their own! Guess what most people chose to do... The planets were coloured in with chalk pastels and sprayed with fixative so they wouldn't smudge. Some children named their planets as well... and got very creative in the process!
We cut out our designs and stuck them to a black sheet splattered with white tempera to mimic the stars!
See what they did at The Reading Garden.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
