K-2 Special Day students at San Ramon created multi-textured art with Artist Gabrielle Gamboa.
A K-2 Special Education classroom at San Ramon Elementary in Novato was the site of some wild art adventures this Spring! In this series of tactile art workshops, the focus was on stimulating the senses and developing fine motor skills.
Projects included texture rubbings, painting without a brush (via dripping, dragging, pulling, and rolling paint around), aromatic vegetable prints, monoprints, and creating stamped salt dough clay tiles.
The last projects combined several different techniques. Our young artists assembled found objects and glued them to cardboard, which they then covered with foil, painted, and adorned.
Our final project was a group painting on canvas on which each artist used the techniques they enjoyed. It was great to have these artists come out of their shells to have a messy, good time!
