Kindergarten started their week in the art room ‘under the tables!’ Looking at something from a different perspective is not only good for the brain, but also great for the development of muscles and hand-eye coordination. They learned about Michelangelo and that he painted many of his famous masterpieces on ceilings such as that of the Sistine Chapel.
Students were grouped in threes. Each group was designated a table. At each table a simple scene had been drawn onto butcher paper and taped to its underside. The students were instructed to lie on their backs and focus on an area of the drawing. They thoroughly enjoyed this novel way of painting even though more paint landed on themselves than the paper 🙂
