We Explore Art: Julie Paschkis

Best swirly art in the style of Julie Paschkis!
  • Program Goals
    • Introduce Julie Paschkis and her art
    • Encourage gross and fine motor skills
    • Attendance: 10
Art Project Part 1: Sketching (10-10:20)
I told children they would be sketching out their designs to paint. I showed them pictures of Paschkis' sketches for P. Zonka and encouraged them to not worry about mistakes or extra lines.
  • Supplies
    • Pencils
    • Colored pencils
    • Drawing paper
Storytime/Snacktime: 10:20-10:40
I call people to storytime with the Storytime Song, then had the parents pass out the snack. When we read P. Zonka, I had made copies of Paschkis' art process from Seven Impossible Things' interview and we talked about how she sketched out the chickens, tested the colors, and then put all the pictures and words together.

  • P. Zonka Lays an Egg
  • Where is Catkin?
  • Mooshka, a quilt story
Art Project Part 2: Painting (10:40-11)
I popped up a taller table for the big kids and I had two levels of painting. Older kids I encouraged to mix their paints and make new colors. I had biocolor for them to use. Younger children got our no-spill cups to paint from.

  • Washable paint in no-spill cups
  • biocolor paint
  • Paintbrushes, aprons

  • 6-22-18
    • Attendance: 25
    • Notes: Lots of younger kids, lots of wandering in and out, lots of kids who came in late just to paint.
  • 6-28-17
    • Attendance: 16
    • Notes: Mostly younger kids. They liked the painting best, weren't really into the stories although they listened.
  • 6-19-15
    • Attendance: 25
    • Feedback/Connections: Several families that were new to me came and really enjoyed the program. One grandma was very interested in Julie Paschkis and would like to use what we did with her own students.
    • Notes: I really need older kids to get the sketching part down, but it was fun anyways.
