In kindergarten, we read and discussed the book The Crayon Box That Talked by Shane DeRolf before practicing our crayon coloring and scissor cutting procedures. It is such a great introductory lesson for the younger grades to get them in the mindset that they are each special in the art room and we love that each one of us has our own talents! Some of us may like painting more than drawing or reading about art more than talking about it, but our goal in art this year is to be open to trying new and exciting activities! We're growing artists! Kindergarten artists also got to participate in their first art critique; they are starting off very ART SMART!
