Bird houses

Bird houses
Art by six year olds.
Backgrounds are wax crayon rubbings, of things in the playground. Encourage overlapping of colours and reliefs. Discussions about things appearing larger and lower when they are closer. Children draw three bird houses at different distances.  The lines are made with black PVA. While they are drying, pencil sketches of birds are made and cut out. The colour is added to the houses with concentrated dye, applied with cotton buds for accuracy. Position the bird and attach.
