At PS 100 in the Bronx we have an active art studio. Grades 1-4 make sculpture, prints, paintings and collages. Elementary school children love art. It is amazing to watch a child's face transform to delight when they see that they have created something. Looking out at a children engaged in their artwork and dancing to their muse is just wonderful. It makes up for all the paint I clean up later. Things so simple as folding paper into zig-zags and spirals are magic to children. Today they kept shouting my name so I could see how their rolled strip of paper unfurled to a spiral as they waved it. Even the most jaded child was all smiles.I would like resources for the children to make full size body tracing/water colors of themselves. Being that I teach art to grades 1-4, I am always trying to make the children conscious of their bodies in motion. When we are getting ready to do artwork I ask lots of questions about how and where bodies bend. One girl asked me "Did you know when I run that is a verb? I ask questions so that when they draw themselves it can reflect their seemingly perpetual motion. Last year the children made body tracings of each other,the tracing made them appear as if they were moving in some way. I put them up in the school stairwell. The kids LOVED seeing themselves on the school walls. However, the lightweight nature of the butcher paper and the heavy tempera had a relatively short shelf life. I would do this project with a class of less than 20 Second Graders. We would need Heavy weight water color paper, water colors and sharpies. It cannot be overstated how important it is for the children to see representations of themselves and the art work they made in the school. We are in a school with long hallways and deep stairwells. It would really make a difference to the students to claim the school as their own to have substantial children's artwork displayed.
