It’s hard to tell how long it will take children to complete an art project. But this week, I just knew they would be quick We learned about Monet, and they created impressionist paintings using sponges. As usual, I had coloring pages for them to work on when they were done. But this week I also laid out a big piece of paper, and they used their extra paint to create a class mural. It was fun seeing them work together to make the finished piece, which is now hanging in the art room. Maybe Miss Jane (the head of after school programming) will move it to the wall right outside her office. I think it would brighten anyone’s work day.
