Mixed Media in the Morning: Preschool at Smilie

Preschoolers enjoyed dripping glue onto their pieces that they had painted last week in art. This was our second day working on these "mixed media" works. The preschoolers have learned that mixed media means using many different types of art materials on the same piece of artwork.

Tea with the Queen

Our kindergartners at Smilie have been very busy making teacups out of clay. The children have been learning all about clay and, most recently, they used the pinch pot technique to make a teacup. Today, was exciting because we got to actually USE the teacups the students made. We had a VERY fancy tea party with our special guest--the Queen aka Mrs. Cole. It was meaningful for the children to see that their own art creations were real and functional.
