This week in Kindergarten Art we continued the study of the Ratner School building. I showed the students the original plans of the building along with the blue prints of the iconic Ratner School column designs. We talked about the job of the architect and how art helps the design of buildings and houses. I showed the students other examples of the work of Edward Stone, the architect of our school. The students then went outside to create a carbon paper "blue print" drawing of the columns. For the next unit, the students were given a photo of the school to draw and then watercolor paint. Many students now want to paint the roof of the Ratner School with rainbow colors! I love the creativity of our kindergarten artists.
