First Day of Kindergarten & 1st Grade Art

We had our first week of school!   Beth Carter posted wonderful pictures of her students drawings on the first day with the title “I had art today!”  I borrowed the concept and made sheets for my kindergartners and first graders to take home on their first day of art class.

Here is the PDF download of “I Had Art Today!”

I had my students draw a picture of themselves as an artist or a picture of themselves in class with their art teacher.

And here is me on my first day with kids.  This Keith Haring shirt is from Torrid.
