Today's book 'The Tiny Seed' is one of Eric Carle's best sellers and I just love everything by Eric Carle because his illustrations are always so beautiful. So for our art piece today we took a walk in his shoes and took our time piecing together the scenes from his book using coloured tissue paper and other painted papers... but I also found this inspiring video of an artist who creates some amazing works of art just by gluing textured papers onto a canvas! I love showing children that there is no limit on what you can use to create a beautiful work of art.
So the kiddos took that in and we started our project for the day.
The response to that video was "wow.. that's so cool... we going to do that?" Well, we took inspiration from it! Take a look at our results :)
See what they did later that day 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 :)
