Jasper Johns was an American Pop Artist who liked to work with things that we saw everyday but never thought twice about. A lot of his works deal with numbers, maps, and even flags! While he doesn't solely work with the primary colors, many of his artworks use only those colors.
Just like the first graders, kindergarten is also learning about Jasper Johns! I chose Jasper because he works a lot with numbers and since we were celebrating our 100th day of school, it seemed like a perfect fit!
The first day we got extra messy! We used primary colors to mix tints and shades all over our paper! The kinders loved this part of the project!
For the second day, we used white paint to paint whatever numbers we wanted facing all different directions. They were tickled pink when they got to paint 100! They also used some number stamps to print numbers all over their paper.
The final day, I created a bunch of number tracers out of card stock. Students used oil pastels to trace and color in different numbers all over their papers. Lastly, they glued on 3 numbers that I had die-cut out of the primary colors.
