Here is a quick project we did Wednesday. It's a green collage. I gave my 5 year old an old magazine and scissors. His favorite color is green, so I told him to find all the green things and cut them out. He did a great job! When he finished, he used a glue stick to paste them on green paper.
This activity is great for motor skills and it gave me some time to get dinner ready!
Wife, Mom, Artist and Education Coordinator at City Arts Center. I believe art is a child's first written language. They have a creative spirit and imagination others tend to lose as they grow up. Many famous artists have tried to duplicate the way children paint and draw knowing that children have a true artistic bravery, unafraid and unabashed. I have the wonderful opportunity to share art with children and watch this process unfold. It truly is magical.
