With International Dot Day coming up this week I thought it might be fun for students to experiment with color and 3 different media choices.

Round-robin art is a method where each child starts with a sheet of paper and draws or paints for a minute or two, before passing it to the peer seated next to them. Each child adds their own personal and special touch to the creation and passes it on. This teaches the children that others can add beauty to their world, that they’re not in this alone and that collaboration is fun! We love this project!

Creating Sculptures with Aluminium Foil

Aluminium foil, due to its unique stiffness as well as softness and due to the textures when scrunched, can lend itself beautifully to the art of making sculptures. It gives you lot of flexibility. So, kids have another medium besides clay and play-dough to play with. The best part is – it’s not messy at all.
