Sandpainted Suns December 19, 2013

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 4:26 pm

The kindergarten students drew beautiful suns, and were so excited to learn how they were going to color them after I told them that markers, paint, and the other usual choices were out.  Instead, we used glue and sand to create textural color for the suns.  Inspired by suns seen in Native American art, students were challenged to draw an unusual sun with a variety of rays and shapes.   We also had a great conversation about why Native American sandpaintings did not include pink, purple, red, blue, or green colored sands!
