For the past few weeks, I have been having an art class with the Children's Center in Harrison. They walk over to me for some art time. This is our third project. I gave them the black paper to build on. It was about shape recognition and size, emphasizing we were going from largest to smallest. I told them they can build anything they wish, but the majority built houses. This is not a surprize as the square/rectangle and triangle lends itself to it. I also wonder if it has to do with one child projecting the image of the house and the rest follow? One younger child went in the direction of a rocket ship (on left). I was impressed with what came later with the strips of paper I gave them. I gave them an example of what can be done by manipulting it various ways; curling, folding, bending... Last was the embellishment of flowers and butterflies.
These artworks and photos of them working will be exhibited in the town house during the month of April.
