CONCEPT 

Shapes

EXPERIENCE 

Shapes are fun to build with!  Did you know that you can build a picture with shapes?  After we read together the book, Go Shapes Go!,  see what you can make out of your shapes.  You will have big and little arcs (shaped like a rainbow), triangles, rectangles, circles, ovals, and squares to build with. Have fun with shapes! You can make a monkey, bird, rocking horse, a cat, or whatever you want to make with your shapes.

PROJECT 

Children will glue pre-cut paper shapes onto a piece of paper to create the images mentioned above or something of their own choosing. Examples will be on display to spark ideas.


Workshop Teacher

  • Marilyn Wooten

    Marilyn, a retired educator, taught art from preschool through sixth grade for Ashe County Schools.  The classes she taught focused on art through the multiple intelligences. Children as well as adults learn in different ways; multiple intelligences help students discover their strengths. Marilyn studied art at App. State and N.C. Central where she received certification in art education.  She is inspired by children and their art and enjoys working with pencil and watercolor.
