Awesome Anniversary Art

Dateline: Clintonville, OH. Annual May Celebration of the Arts. I'm invited to be the headliner for the 40th Anniversary of early childhood excellence. I get to perform with the children & their parents in the fellowship hall while everyone gets to see rooms and rooms of artwork created through out the program during the school year!!!

These projects were created by the very youngest in the program. These "collages" were created by the 2.5 year olds using coffee filters as the main ingrediant for their painting explorations (the filters become the main 'floral' elements and are fancy cut by the teachers.) The children then were directed to choose silk floral elements and stickers for further embellishment.

I was loving the floor to ceiling displays of color and design when the dear teacher came over and said, "I thought you might like those. We based them on the illustrations and quilts from your first picture book, "You're Wonderful!!"

Here are a few reminders of their inspiration for the exploration of their process paintings. You've got to love a teacher who extends the life and excitement of a picture book through the art projects in the room. Three cheers for the 2.5 year olds!!! Three cheers for the teachers!!

Thanks for your support! I am so appreciative of your pins!
