It’s the beginning of the year, which means we are still spending a lot of time doing things like “Learning how to use a glue stick.” Process art is a great way to give my students lots of chances to practice, without worrying that project will turn out perfectly. (Who likes perfect preschool art, anyway!??)
We call this one the Picasso Project. It is so simple, but the results are impressive! The students have a supply of circles, in fall colors, and strips of brown paper. They can glue them however they would like on the paper!
When they are finished, we trim any pieces that are off the edge of the paper. Look at the results!
Another great process art piece is a Fall Tree. To make this one, we trace the students’ arms on a large piece of paper. The students then color them brown to represent a tree trunk and branches.
Looking for more Fall themed ideas? Here’s a whole circle time unit on just that very thing!
