Kindergarten Peacocks

There are flocks of peacocks popping up in the Kindergarten hallway! The Kindergarten artists created these amazing peacocks after studying the artist Eric Carle. They discovered that Eric Carle wrote and illustrated many of their favorite picture books. After a fun and messy session of painting papers, the students cut their papers to create their peacocks.




Learning goals:

I can identify the art of Eric Carle

I can use warm and cool colors to create a peacock

Kindergarten Fireflies

Kindergarten artists created these fireflies in the style of Eric Carle to support our school SPARK project where we raised money to send solar powered lanterns to teachers in Uganda. Each teacher in our building read the story The Lonely Firefly by Eric Carle to introduce SPARK to the students. Kindergarteners learned about Eric Carle’s art and began the project by painting paper. They then used their painted paper to cut out the parts of their fireflies. The students worked hard on their fireflies and they turned out beautiful!
