for my 4-6 year olds kids' art lesson today we did these 'Cool Hands, Warm Hearts' drawings.
concepts learnt and discussed were:
- cool colours vs warm colours
- following a pattern (ie, red-yellow-orange, red-yellow-orange)
- drawing part-circles (that go off the edge of the paper)
- and, surprisingly, drawing the circles right over the top of the hand outline was unnatural for them.
it was fun and the mums were so encouraging.
