August 11...MIcro Art "K" Mini Challenge

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Pablo Picasso 

Years ago, I walked into a neighboring teacher's classroom. She sat at her desk, a large golden, jewel-studded crown on her head. Her third graders sat in silence.

I approached, wanting to go over a schedule change. When I eyed the crown, she told me it was how she shielded herself in silence, and was able to get work done without interruptions. Wearing it made her king and no one was allowed to approach her. She gave that time to herself each day to finish things, relax and get it together before moving on with the all the scheduled activities.

Today's Project:  "K"  Feeling like Royalty

  • Get out your 3x3 and quickly sketch your own version of a crown. Could be very detailed and ornate or a simple shape.
  •  Use various materials to fill in with color. Add embellishments. 
  • Add the date and jot down a few ways you can treat yourself like royalty today (have a special food, take a nap, read something you enjoy, pamper yourself in some way). Keep the crown in a place where seeing it will remind you to treat yourself to something special once in while.
