Well, now that I have vented and my rant is over, I will get on to what we did in art class today!
My kindergarteners painted primary lines. First we practiced drawing different lines on a worksheet. I reviewed how to paint with tempera paint and let the kids go! I have to say, today's group was VERY good about not getting paint all over the place and they worked really well together to clean up. Very refreshing, especially for the first day of painting in kindergarten art! The only thing this group was not very good with, was being creative and using a variety of lines in their painting. I'm sure I'm going to find that the other groups will be opposite!
