The idea here is that we will spend about a month covering a particular artist or style of art. This will be of course alongside all of the other units, themes, and topics we will be covering. You can read more about our Preschool Plans for the 2016-2017 academic year in a separate post. As a result, the amount of time we will be dedicating each artist/art form will really depend on Y’s interest and how it goes.
We’re going to be keeping things very general as he is only four years old and very hands on. Some activities will include matching image cards and learning the names of paintings. Others will be more hands on with play dough, recreating paintings with different forms of media, etc. We’ll see how everything develops and I will be sharing our journey with you as we go!
