Yayoi Kusama kindergarten mushrooms art lesson
I'm still teaching on a cart and still racking my brain to come up with ideas that aren't messy and don't require a sink!
This is one I came up with while I was reviewing the beautiful art of Yayoi Kusama. My kindergarteners absolutely loved her polka dot inspired art!
Students used paint daubers to press dots all over their choice of 12" x 9" colored construction paper.

The Great Wave 1st grade art lesson
This idea came from the blog The Lost Sock. She did it with her fourth grade class so I needed to change it to fit the needs of my first graders. I'm teaching on a cart because of COVID so I'm scanning the internet daily for messy free art projects!
Art with Mati and Dada has a seven minute video on YouTube on Hokusai that is age appropriate. It's a great introduction to his "The Great Wave". I think it is so important to introduce students to famous paintings so when they are out and about in the community they recognized these iconic art pieces. Currently, Target has this print in their poster section!
