Kindergarten Paints

Painting like "real" artists is what Kindergarten does BESt! All children are artists but sometimes they want to look like what they think a grown-up artist looks like.  So that is what we did in art last week. The kindergarten students that have art in the Creative Cottage painted at easels, wore smocks, had different size brushes and a painting pallet. They stood at their easel and painted a "Story Painting" while holding their paint pallet and brush. It was so much fun!

Who says tables have to be flat...
