On October 21st and 22nd the preschoolers had two beautiful fall mornings at Blooms and Berries. The children enjoyed visiting the animals, playing in the corn and using the water pumps before taking a bumpy hayride to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins. The morning ended with an apple juice and popcorn snack. Yum!
Our Creative Tots did a wonderful job creating their Jasper Johns inspired work. Our art display at Totstober was quite a look at the artistic talent at Creative Tots. Get the frames ready!!!
Take a look at some of our wonderful work.
Toddler Artist used marbles in paint to roll the red and orange onto the background. Next an ABC stencil was placed over their work and they rolled blue paint over top. Very Jasper Johns!!
Early 3s and Preschool artists studied Jasper Johns Numbers and created these wonderful pieces. We learned about warm and cool colors as they painted the background in blue and green cool colors and the numbers in red and yellow warm colors.
Our Pre-K artists used oil pastel to create the alphabet grid. Next they painted each square with watercolor. It was wonderful to see the color choices each artist made as they moved from square to square.
Art has come to Creative Tots! This week we are starting Art Classes within your Creative Tots schedule. Each month we will pick a new Artist to take us on our journey through color, line, shape and form. October brings us our first Artist, Jasper Johns. He is one of my favorites as he is able to take everyday symbols such as numbers, letters and flags and create colorful works of art with his paint. Johns is an American Artist born in Augusta, GA in 1930 and still lives and works in New York. To find out more visit www.jasperjohns.com and/or Google Search his name. Take a look below to view a few examples of his work and be watching later this week to view examples of some of our Creative Tots Artists. All of our Jasper Johns inspired work will be on display at our Totstober Halloween Night.
