Process art is child-directed art that celebrates creativity & exploration with no specific expectation for what the product may look like. Our Yellow Class artists are learning about bugs & made some fabulous process art creations today. They were given a toilet paper tube & a tray of art supplies & told to create their own unique bug. They were all excited to share their bugs with me when I visited today.
Our classes are enjoying their life cycle units this month!
