Mini Masterpieces

Everything you need to know may be learned in kindergarten, but for me, at least creativity began in preschool. Some of the best art projects I ever did as a kid were at Crocus Hill Preschoolin St. Paul, Minnesota. And going back 25 years later for the schools fabulous art show (their 51st!) brought my colorful, tactile experiences right back.

My favorite, the metamorphosis unit, is still going strong throughout the year, Crocus Hill kids watch real butterflies grow, spread their wings, and finally fly to Mexico while documenting the process through art (think gold glittered seams on the chrysalis). A brand-new segment this year on abstract art led to the Wassily Kandinsky project, in which kids used watercolor and crayon to create the gorgeous group piece above.

I hope these snapshots will get you and your kids inspired to make and learn together as the new school year begins.
