Last Thursday, our second graders worked with American artist Eric Saline during art class. They had fun painting a gigantic African patchwork with their fingers. The painting relates to their current Unit of Inquiry on habitats in Kenya (“What a Life”).
Eric Saline talked about the meaning of painting directly with our fingers or feet and emphasized the uniqueness of our finger prints. The students will be visiting his exhibition at the St. John’s Art Gallery this week.
