T’marim Develops Artistic Style
When T’marim (EC3-4) teachers Yeshiva and Julie noticed that their students really enjoyed drawing themselves, they decided to focus on self-portraits for their artist study. Through the process, the children learned to look at the details, draw what they see, use the colors that they see, all while developing their fine motor skills. Students learned about artists such as Hanoch Piven, an Israeli artist, who uses found objects to make portraits. They were also visited by a guest expert: Ms. Rhiannon Van Bindsbergen (aka Ms. Van), Schechter’s Visual Art Educator. Ms. Van taught the T’marim students about Picasso, then inspired students to create self-portraits in Picasso’s style. During a time when visitors and field trips aren’t allowed, it was really exciting for the students to have this special experience. The children created their portraits using different media including markers, found objects, collage material, paint, and photo selfies.
Next week, stay tuned for photos of the entire Early Childhood Drive-Through Art Exhibit!
