The kindergarten neighborhoods project was inspired by a photo I found on Pinterest. These had such an impact when displayed together at our art show! On day one we painted neutral colors onto wood blocks and printed them onto tan paper (thanks to the kind lady at Home Depot who cut the wood pieces and GAVE them to me!!). We printed by table rotation (5 colors) and I was so proud of my kids for listening and following through with this procedure. Whew!
On day two, we added windows, doors, chimneys, etc. using small pieces of mat-board dipped into black tempera paint. On the final day, the kids used oil pastels to add pops of color. Small sponges attached to clothespins were used to add a path of rectangles in the negative space (some classes used white paint and others used yellow-orange paint).
