In our late winter session of our Materials Playgroup, we are exploring 3-D art and design. There are many reuse materials that our friends have been using to explore this concept, and we have provided opportunities for children to acquire and fine-tune new skills.
Each week, we gather around exploring clay. Then, the studio is open where we have a sensory bin full of lids, balls and tunnels, cutting, gluing, taping, mark making and painting. We are also exploring wire and stringing.
We have been working on a project that builds on the work done in previous weeks. First we glued cut cardboard tubes on canvas and cut additional materials for the mixed media collage. After two weeks of gluing, we added paint. Stay tuned for updates on where we take our project next!
