I did this project last month with my 5 and 6 year olds but as these works are turning out so amazing I am posting the works of my 7 and 8 year olds now. Somehow I was never a Depeche mode fan but I guess there comes a time for I just can’t get enough!
I am most proud of my 5 and 6 year old artists!
We had a tiny chat about self portraits in the history, we had a good laugh about a few of them and we were shocked about some others. Some were pretty, some surprising. Quite very interesting! And this here is how my children see themselves. Most adorable pieces of art ever! And they aren’t small!!
Ich bin sehr stolz auf meine 5- und 6-jährige Künstler!
Wir hatten ein kleines Gespräch über Selbstbildnisse in der Kunstgeschichte, wir haben uns über einige von ihnen gut ausgelacht und wir waren schockiert über einige andere. Manche waren hübsch, manche überraschend. Alles ziemlich interessant! Und dies ist, wie die Kinder sich so sehen. Es sind die bezauberndsten Kunstwerke überhaupt! Und sie sind wirklich nicht klein!!
We had a very interesting time talking about Oskar Schlemmer and the basic forms. Children were busy drawing the forms, some also used rulers, then there was lots of cutting. And after – the pleasure of painting!
This time we had a little lesson on Jean Dubuffet and then we did a lot of work. Children had such a good time. There was nothing to think about, nothing to be careful about, they could even walk and lay down anywhere on the piece they were creating. Really cool!! And now look at this fabulous playground they’ve made!
We worked on Matisse. We read a nice book about his life and his scissors. Man in his bed and wheelchair cutting up everything that came under his fingers. The children really enjoyed the project. It was easy and not hard too connect to. I am happy to show these works they’ve made. I love the forms they did, the colours they’ve joined. We were a bunch of proud and bouncing art nutters!!
