I've been inspired by my students' repsonse with a new art lesson on the shelves these days. They have been demonstrating such meticulous work with stunning results! As with the activity seen in THIS POST about a drawn line moving all around a page which starts and ends in the same spot, this lesson also highlights the same concept. During circle time, I showed the children the steps necessary to carry out the lesson, including demonstration of how the line moves to create interesting shapes. Then, watercolors are used to fill in the design created by the "doodle design."

It has been a true joy watching my students work! Here are just a few samples (remember, these are from three, four and five year olds!):
Do you see what I mean about feeling inspired?! :)
