every so often there is a small notice in the kindy newsletter that very politely encourages parents to refrain from audibly groaning when their children come home with a pile of "art".
everyone knows Eric Carle, right? (of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' fame)
he makes pictures out of collaged paintings...
...and now so can you!!
(convinced that all those wild dashes of paint are invaluable yet??)
allow me to further convince you....
if you haven't heard of Shepard Fairey, i'm sure most of you have seen this:
( i love shepard fairey's work btw)
...and remember that pile of kindy paintings?
a little Carle-Fairey fusion :)
seriously, i beg Ty to do paintings every time he is at kindy. (he seems to prefer the sand pit though so i might have to start bribing him i think!)
i'm working on this one of my sister at the moment. i'm imagining a circular pattern behind her with her in the centre. will show when i'm done
happy chopping :)
