Drawing and Painting in the Studio
In the weeks before Thanksgiving, the Brown Room children explored using colored pencils in addition to crayons for drawing and mark making. Today, the children explored a new material: PASTELS! Children explored using a combination of materials and saw how pastels can be blended. To match the wintery weather, blues and whites returned to our easel tray as well in the studio.
Ragnar and Cal both experimented with the pastels and pencils to see how the marks that they made were different. "I'm drawing my mommy." -Cal
Ford: "I’m making a house, a house for you."
Fay: "I’m making a house for Ford. I need this color. I’m going to do another blue, this blue." (light blue).
Scenes From the Brown Room Restaurant
Leading up to our Thanksgiving Feast the children had an opportunity to prepare vegetables for our soup. This week, we're using our imagination to cook up some delicious meals in dramatic play.
