It is so important for children to use physical, three- dimensional materials... Try Crayola's MOdel magic and 24 hours after the kids have sculpted their monsters or animals or abstract designs give them some watercolor paint and plates and tell them to create a background... watch what happens next:)
Wrigley the now 2 year old GoldenDoodle posing in front of some very unfinished watercolors I have been working on for years...Never give up on Unfinished work, never abandon your ideas... keep looking and then one day it will happen:)
This is the model for a series that I'm having Kindergarten through eighth grade become accustomed to and produce personal work inspired by contemporary collage... Let's see how the kids do? I'm sure I'll get some great stuff!! more updates to come...
