Don’t Brush Off These Little Artists  

Our fours classes, The Hummingbirds and the Puffins, were very busy during the month of March. Both classes have been engaged in a study of different artists in conjunction with our Brooklyn Museum program. After visiting the Mickalene Thomas exhibit which is currently on display at the Brooklyn Museum, our museum educator, Brigitte, kicked off the unit with a special project. The students cre-ated colorful collages inspired by the work of Mickalene Thomas using pictures cut out of magazines, glitter and jew-els. They went on to study Jackson Pollock and made a huge dripped paint mural. For their study of Keith Haring, the children made life size Haring inspired figures in motion. The children outlined each figure with a painted black line, Their fine motor development over the course of the year was evident in the precision of their carefully drawn lines.. They also made mobiles out of pipe cleaners, and foam shapes in the spirit of Alexander Calder and an Andy Warhol inspired picture composed of four black and white copies of photos of their faces which they added color to. The children then talked about Pablo Picasso and the different periods of his career. They painted blue paintings and captioned them "what makes me sad is…" They also made Picasso inspired self- portraits using as their base a juxtaposed full face and profile pic-ture of themselves. The culminating event of the unit was a "Café/Gallery". Parents were invited in to view all of their art work as they were served bagels by their very own budding artists. PS Art

With the close of the very rich artists unit the fours turned their attention to the 100th day of school and an-other huge celebration. In preparation for the day each child made a 100 day hat decorated with 100 dots. They stacked 100 plastic cups, counted 100"unifix" cubes, and talked about what they would buy if they had $100. One of the students said, I would buy a real pig! I would put it in the bathtub when it rolls in mud." They also painted a huge paper pizza and decorated it with 100 toppings. That was followed by a real pizza lunch. The 100th day of school is always a highlight of the school year.

We are already looking forward to summer and planning for our summer program. We offer a 7 week program that runs June 16- August 1. The program is open to 3-5 year olds. If you would like to receive an application please email us at susan@utpreschool.org, or krista@utpreschool.org
