Artists A-Z (A Kindergarten Alphabet Art Show)
Posted 05/08/2017 02:33PM

Throughout the year, kindergarteners spent each week learning about an artist or art technique whose name corresponds to a letter in the alphabet. By late April, each student had a portfolio of 26 artworks, ranging from painting to drawing, sculpture, and even site-specific installation.

With their vocabulary of artists in hand, we traveled to the National Gallery of Art, where students looked for the work of artists we had studied in class.

This day long field trip was followed by an art exhibition that took over much of the wall space throughout the school. Family and friends joined the young artists, as they sung a song about all of the artists they had been introduced to. Then each family dispersed into the hallways to look at a year’s worth of work.

Originally published on the "Barnesville Buzz" classroom art blog, where you can see a full gallery of photos as well as quotes of what the students told Mrs. Landriau they liked most about their favorite artists.
