I never knew insects could be so much fun. We started by identifying the different parts of insects and counting their body parts. These paintings are the kids' inventions of possible insects. They even invented really great names for their insects. These insects are so cute, I just want to give them a hug.

The animal tiles are a painting of an animal split into three sections. Each section then becomes interchangeable with other students' sections. So I can swap my crocodile head with your chicken head. When they students finish designing and painting their tiles, we will display them in an interactive exhibition where people can switch around the different body parts.

The Kindergarteners considered two ways to paint a shape: the outline and fill in method, and the blob out from the center method. Exploring different approaches to a simple task encourages the young artists to be very conscious of the many decisions they make throughout the process of making a piece of artwork. These Kindergarteners are especially thoughtful about their techniques. I really enjoy hearing them talk about their methods with amazing lucidity and specificity.
