Today's project was very exciting! Kindergartners looked at Keith Haring's 'dancing figures'. We discussed rhythmic lines, shapes, the figure and overlapping. Students picked out their back ground color and received a long rectangle with a pre-cut head. Students tore rectangles for arms and legs and a large one for the body. I gave students the option of tearing the elbow and knee to show more 'movement' from their figure. Students were also encourage to add 'rhythmic lines'.
I found this flat file at our school's warehouse and I can't wait to paint it!
Last year, I used bookshelves to hold all the artwork and used labels by class and grade level. The problem was other students would either touch or move the papers. With the flat file, everything stays where I put it!
Let me start off by saying, I have the best husband in the world! He helped me rearrange my cabinets today and move tables around. Love HIM!
Organization is the key for me. When everything has a place and is arranged neatly, life just flows smoother. Below are a few pictures of lasts years many layouts and my new one for thisyear. I'm still puzzled what to do about two bookshelves that I use to hold projects.
