Tag along with the Moon and Greenhill
Calling all preschoolers! Join our partner, GreenHill Center for NC Art for some storytime and art making fun every Masterpiece Friday.
Are you ready to become a shape expert? This Masterpiece Friday, Miss Jaymie explores Shape through the work of artist, Eleanor Annand. She then reads us a story about a little boy who watches the moon as it follows him home from his grandpa's house, and then takes us through some art making you can try from home!
First, let's look at the artwork of Eleanor Annand.
Now that you're a shape expert, let's dive into the story, Max and the Tag-Along Moon, by Floyd Cooper.
Inspired by the story, we're going to make some art! Here's what you'll need to get started:
White and black paper
Gray or black paints - finger paints or tempera work great
Circular objects from around the house. These should be objects that can get messy, since we're using them instead of brushes. Some suggested items to try: plastic cups, bottles, or small containers.
Ready to get making? Let's do some art at home!
GreenHill has plenty more where that came from! Check out Virtual GreenHill here.
