We are starting our ART ALPHABET in art class. We started with A, of course, and we created apples from torn construction paper. Prior to class I cut rectangles for each of the colors but they had to tear them and glue them to create the apple. They used a black crayon to add seeds (I let them add as many as they wanted) and to write their names. We used glue sticks to glue everything down to the paper. First, we discussed the rules of using glue sticks. 1. Please do not twist the glue all the way when you use it, (that is how it breaks) and 2. Please make sure you twist the glue all the way down before you put the cap back on so that it does not get"smushed" in the cap!
