An invitation to observe the lines, shapes, and colors in the work of alexander calder. we are researching and sharing ideas through the language of paint before moving onto the language of sculpture. 🔴🔵🟡⚫️ #calder#atelier#reggioinspired#100languages
Could this robot be any cuter? our beginning woodworkers ages 6-10 made these robots to practice the skill of driving a s***w into wood as straight as possible! we just posted the next session of beginning woodworking, next level woodworking, and one of my goals for today is to get a caregiver/child ages 3-5 class up today!
heather’s got some incredible projects in mind and we are grateful she’s making hatch her wood shop on sundays! @heather_newlin
Foxes always are a favorite, even if they do eat our ducks, as lulu pointed out. enjoyed making this egg carton pinterest craft this afternoon with the kids. just need to pop some holes and string them up ✨
all you need is paint, an egg carton, scissors, and some imagination ☺️ what are you up to these slow winter days? ❤️em
This session, our hatch families are taking home a special frame, to clip in photos of the artists in process. squishing, pouring, painting, cuddling, connecting. these moments are meaningful! and because these moments are so meaningful, we can focus on creating super imaginative, engaging, enticing invitations without worrying about a finished product. that’s the beauty of process art. it’s about the experience. .
only a week and a half until the final session of the school year begins! join this creative, child-centered community! 〰️
I did a poll a few days ago asking if any you needed a break and the answer was 100% yes!! maybe it’s the time of year, maybe it’s the moon, who knows?!🤷♀️
why do you think we all need a nap right now??? (and how do you energize yourself yourself when you need a boost?!) 📷:@thisgrowinglife (love how our rainbow fabric alphabet is hung in her homeschool room🙌🏻)
This morning our preschool mixed media art class ate donuts and talked about self portraits and what the term “portraits” mean. then hey each traced a photo of themselves on transparency paper and colored it in with crazy colors. then they used two different kinds of paints to make a colorful background and also glued on some fun little details to add some pizazz ! we love how these turned out and hope it brings some smiles to your friday!!
Painting with big brushes. i usually think of big brushes for larger surfaces but i got this idea from @sevandgeorge who is one of my students. the kids loved the big brushes. we added salt. some finger painting and salt dumping happened. it all came together in a wonderful process for the kids. we are going to be adding to these next week.

Art show provocations have begun! here's a sneak peek into our projects. bonsai exploring fabric, tumbleweeds checking out mirrors and self portraits, willow woods playing with light, and reflection grove researching animals in art. (sorry i missed you this week waterfall! waterfall will be doing larhe motor art). have a great weekend!
Balancing space sculptures. this is a second post about this project. i highly recommend trying this at home or in class. there was so much problem solving and learning involved in the process. the kids balanced pieces, and some created sculptures with moving parts. every child was able to complete this independently. it was so much fun to watch them trying different ways to construct the pieces.
This is open-ended art. we changed things up today and painted with pasketti!! 🍝😜
so what makes it open-ended? it focuses on the process of creating rather than focusing on what the end-product should look like. preschool art is about encouraging children to be creative, not about directing a child on making a picture perfect piece of art. allow children to explore with different art tools and materials. this is how they develop creativity- a very important life skill 🖌 #littleartists#preschool#preschoolart#ventura#venturaca#venturakids#venturapreschool#venturabeach#venturacalifornia

Another fun way to teach sight words is to use magnetic letters and numbers and put them on refrigerator/dishwasher etc
With all the valentine and love books out there, we didn't get a chance to read 𝘓𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘔𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳 before the holiday was over but because we're working on the letter m, i read it this week anyway. and really, when is a book about love, kindness and monsters not appropriate?
after we read, the kids made these adorable directed drawing love monsters. swipe to see the rest!
kelebekler ne kadar yaşar?
birçoğumuz kelebeğin ömrünün bir gün olduğunu duymuşuzdur. hatta bu bilgiyi duyunca hemen hemen herkes kelebeklerin ömrünün bu kadar kısa olmasına çok üzülmüştür. ancak bu bilgi tam olarak doğru değildir, eksik bir bilgidir. kelebeğin türüne göre ömrü bir hafta ile bir yıl arasında değişmektedir.
We know you've missed #funartfriday ! we are back!
these adorable penguin friends graced our hallways recently. students really gave them lots of personality with their wings, eyes, and beaks. then of course there was the beautiful marker backgrounds and individual cut-out icebergs!

Fluid friday! ✨⠀
our ocala stars had a great time exploring their tactile senses through this fluid play! this activity was targeted toward building their sensory skills! who said learning can't be fun?🤗
Create fun mosaic images with these beautiful paper squares, or use them to complement your existing projects. add a pop of color to classroom decorations, or paste them over dull surfaces to create new and exciting objects!
