Got junk mail? And old magazines? GET THEM READY.
You guys. This art invitation surpassed ALL of my expectations. I love that I really didn't have to know what the end project was going to be. We've been looking at portraiture and figure paintings from Warhol, Klee, and Lichtenstein all month long so it seemed like an easy activity for our preschooler to BEGIN with a finished portrait and embellish it. I was blown away by our artists thoughtfulness and intention.
We've used magazines to create surrealism collages and paper mosaic projects but this something new. Instead of chopping-up the photographs, we'll be using them WHOLE as a beginning canvas.
Setting Up the Art Invitation
If you try it out a home, let me know how it goes! Remember, not all artwork has to be fridge-worthy to be extremely valuable. The process that we go through to create art is just (if not more) as important.
