We learned about 3-D art in Kindergarten this week! What is the difference between a sculpture of a person and a flat painting of a person? We talked about how a sculpture can be made of many different materials, such as clay, wood, plaster, cardboard and metal. We also saw how a sculpture can be seen from all around. You can take a walk around the sculpture and see the sides, the back, the top and the front. You can even see the bottom if it is displayed on a clear base! What happens if you turn a flat portrait around? You just see the back of the paper or canvas. You do not see the back of the person!
Here are some examples of our Kindergarten sculptures! To see all of our animals, click on this link for artsonia.com.

In my class, students are given the chance to explore different materials and fun new techniques as they develop their signature style. Some young artists love to draw with a pencil, some like to paint on canvas or create images in a digital format, while others prefer working with clay and molding three-dimensional forms. In my classroom, we use a variety of materials allowing all artists to experiment and figure out which type of art they like the best. At Ranney School, we place a strong emphasis on originality and celebrate artistic differences, always nurturing and encouraging the imagination of every student.
