For a fun activity, I guided my kindergarten class on the basics of drawing a clown using different shapes. They used Sharpie markers to create the clown outline and then added their own details. This one reminds me of Matisse's Woman with a Hat : When done, I let them use watercolors to paint their clowns however they'd like. This was definitely one of the more fun projects we've worked on. The students enjoyed seeing how they each created something different from the same basic concept. Visit my Facebook page for more examples of this, and other kindergarten art projects.
