“Today we are all going to be members of the Explorers At Polaris Club. As members of The Explorer Club we make paintings and share them with our friends! Last week, we made binoculars and observed some art posters. This week we are going to observe more art and focus on details because that is a very important skill for artists. We will end with a final painting using acrylic paints!. While deciding what our final painting will be, we’ll spend some time mixing colors and learning about how to use acrylic paint!”
