The preschoolers worked with both wet and dry chalk today. They drew pictures with dry sidewalk chalk and as they worked talked about their art. They were able to describe different aspects of the chalk on their papers. Next they drew pictures with wet chalk that they dipped in water. The children then compared the wet and dry chalk drawings. They discovered that the color of the chalk was more intense when it is wet. The preschool is currently using the book Art for the Very Young by Elizabeth Kelly. The goal of the book is to help children explore different elements of art using a variety of mediums.
