Collaborative art is my favorite, especially when it is the on-going, multi step sort.
Last year, after seeing the fall leaf garlands that @mericherryla made, we made something similar. Last week we started again and again, the kids loved the process and the freedom they had to create and explore with many mediums. What started out as a large piece of kraft paper ended up covered in paint, pastel, tissue paper, glue and so much glitter. Those steps took a few days and over the weekend I cut out some leaves.
Today the class used pipe cleaners, beads of all kinds, pinecones and those collages leaves to attach to a big stick we found in the yard. It turned out great, and the kids were proud of what they created together! #honeybeeplayschool #preschoolart #seasonalart #processart
