Art Docent

Sharon spent part of the afternoon as one of the art docents for the kindergarten class. The lesson covered how artists show human feelings in their pictures. Each picture was of a mother and child. The Artists and their works included: Mother and Child by Pablo Picasso, The Cradle [shown below] by Berthe Morisot, and Eleanore and Son by Agnolo Bronzino.

The lesson plan talks about how the expressions on the faces and the body language showed love and caring. Sharon was amazed that the kids picked the third painting as their favorite.

For the art project, each kid drew expressions on four blank faces to show how a person can look happy, sad, angry and surprised. We particularly liked Jack's surprised face!
