Kindergarten's Composition VI

This is a project inspired by Wassily Kandinsky's Composition series of paintings. I have done this project two ways: one with bleeding watercolors in the background and this one which is done with bleeding tissue paper for the background. Both turn out equally as gorgeous!

We discuss Kandinsky and how he used music as an inspiration for his paintings. As he worked with a composer, his paintings depict the tones and tempos heard in the music. On day one we dedicate the entire class period to painting the background. Of course with the tissue paper I tear all the pieces up and the kids use glue water to "paint" on top of the tissue to make it stick and bleed into the other colors. This usually takes the entire class period.








On day two we take a vote on what kind of music we will listen to while we paint. On this particular day the kids voted on a violin concerto. While the music is playing, the kids use ONLY black paint to "paint what they hear". As you can see on the painting above, she painted long, swirly lines--most likely depicting the long runs you would hear in the concerto.



Whether or not the kids "get it" every one of these projects turns out awesome and SO colorful! These are definitely a favorite every year!

  4. Typically, carpet needs to be replaced every 10 years or so. Harder surfaces such as wood, tile, and vinyl usually last at least 20 – 25 years. This all depends on your exact circumstances, though. To ensure that your new flooring lasts as long as you intend it to, make sure to purchase from a high-quality manufacturer and go through all the proper steps for maintenance. ikea kitchen designer

    1. Pediatric eye examinations performed by an Optometrist is important for ensuring a child’s eyes are healthy and have the visual skills necessary for learning and development. They are important to detect many eye conditions including: refractive error, strabismus, amblyopia, and more. Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses and/or patching, and are best resolved through Vision Therapy.

However, porous types such as marble and limestone will stain and etch if toiletries and cleaners aren’t cleaned up immediately. Honed surfaces can show oil marks and water spots. Let us help your decide on your specific needs and tile to use. As tile renovation contractors, we do not lay tile over plywood that can swell with moisture and break the tile bond. We use 1/4-inch backerboard over your level subfloor then lay the tile on top. A flexible underlayment will prevent cracks in ceramic and stone tile because it distributes the weight carried evenly.
