These pieces are from the first week of school with my 4 Kindergarten classes. We spent the first few weeks talking about autobiography in our art (which kids already do naturally of course but I was bringing awareness to it). Since art is visual language they were challenged to "explain" what their house was like, how their house made them "feel" or how their fantasy house would be. After they drew with Sharpies they used tissue paper and painted on liquid starch to glue the paper down. I assumed they would have a blast painting with liquid starch but actually, drawing with Sharpies was an even bigger hit! I guess for your first week in Kindergarten drawing with permanent markers is a pretty big deal ;). The results were gorgeous- of course!!
