Harold and the Purple Crayon
We had a fabulous first day of school here in the art room! After reading Crockett Johnson's classic "Harold and the Purple Crayon," we talked about what tools Harold used to have such an exciting adventure. We determined that Harold only required two things: his purple crayon and his imagination. The children jumped right in to create their own monochromatic art adventures in the style of Harold. Since we have purple crayons (and many other art materials) as well as vivid imaginations in abundance, I am looking forward to going on many more art adventures with these young artists. Make sure you check out the students' artwork on the bulletin board outside the art room.
