Hello Imagination Soup readers! Melissa always has terrific book suggestions. How about taking an idea from one of her book suggestions and create some art? More specifically, move and create with Big Art!
Big Art is my favorite type of art to do with kids.
What is Big Art?
Big Art is a term I created to explain art with movement.
Generally its big so you can get all parts of your body involved in it!
Having a boy with lots of energy makes it hard to sit and do crafts and art that takes concentration and precision. So we usually make things big, so we can get completely involved with the piece of art.
Also, since Big Art is big, we generally don’t make it to keep. It’s about the process, and not the product. Big Art makes it be about the process.
How do you create Big Art?
Here are some suggestions to get you inspired!
And link it to a book!
Add other avenues of exploration to an art project.
