Abstract paintings from Texas

2016, 2nd Grade, Dear You Art Workshops, Iceland, USAArlene TuckerComment

We enjoyed creating our abstract painting, without using a brush, while listening to music. We were unable to walk around and find natural items to paint with so I put out drinking straws, Q-tips, and wooden popsicle sticks to paint with.  We listened to the music then I demonstrated a few ways to use our new painting tools. The children had a fun time listening to the music and painting.

Pencils dots piece together wonder

At the beginning children made a variety of exercises. For example, how can a pencil dot and line can make art.  Then using those skills, we drew nature we would we want to see by looking out the window in Mooste.

In Vienna, we had autumn when we were doing the pictures. Trees have beautiful colours, apples are falling down, it is getting cold. So the kids made pictures from our season outside. They had a lot of good and funny ideas to show this! :) You will see it in the pictures!

Hope you are all fine!

Best wishes,
