This was our Third Annual Circle, Spots and Polka Dots Art Show. The goals is to create art with circles using many methods over several weeks. The children love the repetition of using the circles. They love that we can find circles anywhere at anytime.
It opens their eyes to the fact that circles are a huge part of our lives and world.
The Art Work
|Each child selected circles from a large collection of paper circles that|
had been cut from construction paper and hole punches. They glued them in layers
from largest to smallest. Each child had one circle stack displayed on this tower.
Families were invited to attend our art show on a Friday evening. They were encouraged to sign up to bring a circle themed food to contribute. Of course we always love seeing the children and some parents coordinate their outfits to match the theme. This was our biggest year yet and we decided to make it an indoor/outdoor event. The art was inside. Food table and activities were on the playground attached the preschool.
|Each child could find a picture of themselves hanging from one of the balloons around the classroom.|
The pictures were taken the week before to look as thought they are floating away.
|I always love to display any extra circles that I can find around the classroom and|
our favorite circle themed books. The children created
many of these circle garlands to hang around the art show as well.
|The children helped draw chalk circles up our stairs and along our ramp|
to welcome guests to the show.
|Everyone seemed very relaxed and the artists were SO proud to have their families attend.|
I was very excited that we had 100% of our children attend with family members.
|Bubble blowing was a big highlight for the children outside.|
|The children were surprised to find a Ball Pool under the covered climber.|
The enjoyed lounging around and being silly with friends and siblings.
