Today in Kids' Workshop, children continued reflections from our trip to the waterfront on Tuesday. Photographs where we found "signs of spring" as well as a spring flower bouquet were on offer with drawing and painting materials.
Open-ended liquid watercolors were also available. Children enjoyed creating "connect the dots" designs with marker, and then filling in the space with liquid watercolor.
Children continued feather materials explorations as well. Using scanned feather arrangements, children added detail to transform the feathers into a variety of (mostly) silly characters. They loved using their imagination and sense of humor to consider silly characteristics for their feather-transformed people.
Lila: I'm making funny ones. A funny frog with hair, a funny boy with a mustache and a funny girl.
Vivienne: Wait, that's a funny boy with a skirt!
Lila: these are the froggy legs and froggy toes.
Vivienne: This is a funny girl's face.
Lila: Mine's a surprise.
Vivienne: This one has no nose and one part of a lip.
Lila: Mine has a little bun!
Rose: I'm not going to make mine silly. At first it'll look a little silly. This is me in a skirt.
Prater: Mine is a mermaid.
Vivienne: These do not look like real people. They have one eye! Only the ones with whole lips get a check. And one is not even silly, it's a girl.
Lila: Mine don't have legs, they jump around in a sleeping bag.
Heading to the Canal tomorrow in search of some ducklings!
