We are wrapping up Amazing Artists Camp in preschool and this was one of my favorites. (Can I just say again how much I love my co-teachers, who have put together all these wonderful ideas?)
She had a large blank canvas in her garage that she brought to camp and placed on a table. The first day, she put out bowls of paint and various sized circles and squares.
Some of the preschoolers stamped, while others slid, creating an interesting texture.
I loved how they worked together.
The next day, she gave them various utensils to stamp over what they had done the day before.
Simple. Fun. Definitely abstract!
