Room 5: "Dali Art in Preschool Class"

 This month for Our Annual Art Show presentation, our classroom presented three different projects about Salvador Dali (A Surreal Famous Painter from Spain). After reading the book Dali and the Path of Dreams by: Anna Obiols. Our children were inspired and created their projects. First, they made The Long Ledge Elephants; we made an elephant stencil and had each child trace it. After that they painted the elephant and colored the background with colors of their choice and finally they decorated it using different art materials such as: Stickers, pieces of fabric, rhinestones and jewelry. Secondly, The Flying Clocks; they cut their tree and glued it on the card board also; they chose colors for the background and created the nature scenery. In addition, they made the clocks in different shapes and painted with watercolors they also wrote the numbers and the clocks’ hands on it, after the clocks were dry they glued them on their projects. The last project was title Butterflies Sailing on a Ship (3- Dimensional), we used a real piece of a tree log in the shape of a ship. Furthermore, they used different colors to paint the butterflies and create symmetry. Ms Suzette and I set up the sails and helped them to glue the butterflies on it. While our students were working on these projects they enjoyed being creative, interactive, inspired, spontaneous, and being Salvador Dali’s Imitators.
