Artists as Designers-Designing Wrapping Paper
The kids were excited to learn that artists are responsible for designing mostly everything we see or use in our lives. Clothes, furniture, accessories and so much more are all the work of designers. By understanding this kids begin to realize the importance of design in our everyday lives. Here Kinder and First Grade students designed a wrapping paper with a motif. Sometimes they bring so much more to the table than we may expect... the student that created the first image said, "Look, I created an emotions motif." How wonderful is that?
