Overlapping Printed Circles

Printed-overlap-circles-739x1024I think I finally understand that early kinders are best off with just exploring with the process of art making, without any specific results. This is a simple two week project that can be fun, no matter what the final art looks like.

WEEK ONE: Students used a plastic cup and watered down tempera paint to stamp circles on a sheet of white paper. Overlapping was encouraged. When finished, students moved to a clean table and used circle templates to draw faces, wheels, flowers – anything made from a circle.

WEEK TWO: Students colored in the circles with crayons. My example showed them how to overlap colors, but just coloring inside the shape was a good first step too.
