Preschool art Education/new member
- Hi art educators, I new to this list - an art docent in the Alameda,
Ca elementary schools for 8 years now. My youngest is going to a
cooperative preschool here in Alameda. As a part of the curriculum,
I'd like to introduce works of art to the kids in a similar fashion
that we do in the elementary schools, just simplified for their
attention spans. The interest is there - on the kids and the parents
parts, so I'm eager to get started. From your experience, which
artists and prints would you suggest I start out with? Any
suggestions are very much welcome! I'm looking at Matisse, Picasso,
Monet, and Van Gogh...as some of the many artists. We'll do a
discussion and have the painting up for a week for the kids to
observe and do follow up projects. Any suggestions on the pre school
level would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much!!
