Garrison Art Center Art Tots Program

IMG_6354 In this project the kiddos learned what a “Sculpture” is and looked at pieces around GAC’s property and discussed what each was made of. We then collected branches and other objects to paint for our own sculptures.

IMG_6385 Making bubble prints with paint & soapy water (everyone survived the mess!)
IMG_6393 Tracing each other with chalk- this worked especially well with the tots because they had a task that involved play and they loved getting up and seeing their arms, legs, and bodies traced!
IMG_6402 Circle collage & Stick sculptures. Each day we practiced drawing shapes and letters, we began with the circle collage by drawing circles (which is the easiest shape for them to draw, and gets them to go from wild circular “scribbly” drawing to more focused drawing, since most are not ready for drawing actual images) Then we collaged found circular objects, going from bottle caps to flower stickers which the kiddos were excited to point out were made up of circles.

IMG_6342 Making “Stained Glass” windows with contact paper and tissue paper. We got to sit right in the front window and wave to everyone walking by admiring our work!
