“Art should make you feel, like music.”
~ Vasilly Kandinski ~
When children’s masterpieces were complete, framed and titled, I showed every work of art- slowly, with Vivaldi playing in the background. I said nothing except the title of each piece. Listen in the background to children’s excitement:
The next day we hung the Art Show, and it looks stunning. The center is a finger paint mural of Starry Night. Many little hands worked on it, and we added different layers each day, finishing with the round yellow stars.
“Every child is an artist.
It took me a lifetime to draw like a child”

Children who chose to replicate a famous painting or specific items had a ‘real’ photo alongside.
Each particular style of art was titled, from Impressionism to Pointillism, to Cubism, to Abstract Art. Here is Cubism:
Here is Abstract Painting:
Children wrote all the words to label their work. Bravo! Do you see the pallets they used to paint with real artist paint squeezed from tubes? Do you see the hanging guest book for the community to sign and comment? It will be full by mid May.
I hope you enjoyed a peek at their Masterpieces. We take the children to see the Art Show on Thursday.
“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt.”
