Calling all preschoolers! Join our partner, GreenHill Center for NC Art for some storytime and art making fun every Masterpiece Friday.
What's the most important place in your life right now? We're guessing it's probably your home! We're all spending a lot more time in our homes lately, and GreenHill's been working through that theme in creative ways this week. Below, Miss Jaymie leads us through three artistic experiences diving into this"home" theme: looking at art, reading a story, and making art of our own!
First, let's look at the artwork of NC artist, Richard Fennell.
Now that you're an art-observing expert, let's dive into the story, This House That Jack Built, illustrated by Simms Taback.
Inspired by the story, we're going to make some art! Here's what you'll need to make The House That YOU Built:
Colored paper - don't have ready-made paper? Make your own! You can paint paper pieces, color them with crayons or colored pencils - anything will work
Old magazines, newspapers, or advertisements to go on a hunt for the letters of your name!
Ready to get making? Let's do some art at home!
