Pendleton Center for the Arts Leads Snow Globe Art for Kindergartners
What do you get when you have a few hundred plastic cups, some white fluffy stuffing, silver glitter, and 229 kindergartners? You get a lot of snow globes with cute, smiling faces inside them.
All of the kindergartners at the Pendleton Early Learning Center (PELC) had the opportunity to create their own snow globes on Monday, December 11, 2023.
Staff from the Pendleton Center for the Arts were at the school leading the art activity. Roberta Lavadour, Executive Director at the Arts Center, instructed the young artists about coloring with markers on their clear plastic cups. She also provided directions about where to glue the fluffy “snow” on the bottom paper disc and not to touch the snow after the glitter was applied.
Meanwhile, Kate Brizendine, Coordinator of Education and Outreach at the Arts Center, took Polaroid photos of each student to place inside the globes. For the photo, students could choose from a variety of props to use, like reindeer antlers, a red Rudolph nose, Santa’s beard, a candy cane, and more.
The students did a good job of listening and working, and most of all, not getting glitter on the carpet.
“We love when the Arts Center is able to visit our school and lead a fun, creative art project for our students,” said Angela Lattin, PELC Principal.
