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.
