Arturo's Preschool Art Kit Themes:
Pick a Pattern
Triangle, oval, circle, square—what patterns will your students share? Inspired by the richly decorated textiles in Bamana Mud Cloth: From Mali to the World, students will design and use their own patterned stamp. This kit includes foam shape stickers, a block, a piece of fabric, and an ink pad.
Inspired by Rooted, an exhibition that explores what we think of the world around us, students will create their own swirly suncatchers to interact with nature. This kit includes a plastic circle lid, white liquid glue, food coloring, yarn, and a toothpick. This project takes about three days to fully dry.
