Kindergarten Art Class Presents: Symmetrical Butterflies

First, we talked all about symmetry and made a list of as many symmetrical things we could think of!
Then we folded our papers in half and continued by paintings designs, then folding the paper in half so that the same exact design would appear on the other half of our paper! We continued to do this until our papers were filled with beautiful fluorescent colored paints!

  You know it's been a fun day in art when the sink is filled with fluorescent colored brushes!!  : )
 After our paint was dry, we traced one of the beautiful butterfly stencils on our paper and cut it out! When we were finished, Mrs. N helped us put decorated pop sickle sticks and googly eyes on our butterflies, along with fuzzy pipe cleaners!

Free Clay Day!! Students were allowed to spend a class period making beautiful sculptures using their imagination and creativity! I am always amazed at what they come up with!
