Week 23 in the Kindergarten Art and Humanities class brings us another short week because of conferences. We continued our study of E.B. White and the reading of Charlotte's Web. To tie into the study of this beloved author, we talked about the development of characters in literature. How does an author show us a character and how would an artist show a character? We looked at samples of other illustrators and began to think how we would tell a story using only pictures. The students talked about activities they liked to do outside of school and how they would illustrate that story line. With inked thumbprints as the basic form of their characters, each artist added their own details and settings to create a unique book. I hope you enjoyed hearing their stories and viewing all the artwork they brought home this week.
