This week we are reading "Art" by Patrick McDonnell and "The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse" by Eric Carle. "Art" is about a young boy named Art who draws all kinds of art. He draws scribbles and swirls, zigzags and doodles. This book helps the children see their own work as art. In "The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse", the child says "I am an artist and I paint... a blue horse, a red crocodile" and more. It has beautiful illustrations and encourages children to be creative and shows that you should paint what you like.
