Today the kindergarten/first grade art class finished their Eric Carle inspired painted paper projects. Last week, after reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Mr. Seahorse, they painted newspaper with tempera. I chose newspaper because it is thin like the tissue paper Eric Carle uses…and it’s free! The students had to practice visualization to see the caterpillar and seahorse parts hidden on their painted paper. They added details with colored pencil.
