My Kindergarten Kreations
I recently found some of my Kindergarten artwork. What is interesting is that I vividly remember working on these drawings.
This alligator was supposed to have glasses. A classmate saw what I was doing, took my paper, and added the eyelashes. I was not happy about this. However, Mrs. Chapman, my teacher, really liked my alligator. She liked it so much that she had me work on a special project. She had me make a much larger version of this picture, which was framed and put in one of the hallways of the school. It was on display for years, but I don't know if it is still there.
"The Book of Me" was one of those assignments where you had to draw your family members, your pet, and your house. The cover was a xerox copy, but the students created the artwork for the rest of the book. It looks like Mrs. Chapman helped us by writing the text.
Okay, so here I am. It looks like I forgot to draw my hands. I do like my use of complementary colors here.
This is my mother. I gave her a groovy dress and an animal print shirt. I have to say that my use of red and green here is nice. I did not know about the color wheel in kindergarten. Are you getting a bizarre vibe from these drawings? Just wait.
This is my father. I can explain. I thought that drawing my family members was very boring. I started off drawing my dad as a snowman (hence the top hat and round body segments). Then I thought, why not keep adding round segments and make him a caterpillar? So I did. And I'd do it again. This prompted Mrs. Chapman to contact my parents.
This is my brother. I actually think this is a good representation of him (for a 5 year old's drawing, that is). I like the use of black and purple here.
This is our family cat, Cupcake. I loved drawing animals, but I admit that this does not look very much like her.
Here is our house, which is being attacked by a giant bird. Exciting!
