Art Gallery

Our classes have ended for the summer, but our last art class was one of my favorites!  Instead of a typical project, the children were guided to a "gallery" of famous art that they have studied throughout the year.  Not only was the featured work of art for each artist in the gallery, but another work was included as well.  The children were invited to identify the work of art, the artist, and to find the other work of art by the same artist.  What a challenge!  I was very impressed - even the kindergarten class did well!  The best part of it all was to listen to the children's comments on the art....

This class is listening to instructions for how to match the artist's work on the note cards they were given.  Part of the "art gallery" can be seen hanging behind the children.
