Kindergarten Painting Beginnings

Kindergarten artists have been working on mixing the three PRIMARY colors--red, yellow and blue. We began by monoprinting with primary colors and now we have begun working with a brush. We learned about the parts of a paint brush and the way that we use them in Studio 220. Next, we experimented with painting. Here are some images from Ms. Ramsey's class:

Pinch Pot How To by Class 1-213

We are learning how to make pinch pots. Here are the steps:

1. Roll the clay into a ball. Make sure that there are no cracks.

2. Push your thumb into the clay in the middle. Don't make your hole all the way through.

3. Pinch the sides of your clay to make the hole bigger. Make sure you don't make the sides too skinny.

4. Smooth out the cracks with water using two fingers.

5. Put it on a piece of paper with your name on it and put it near the heater to dry.
