Five year olds.
The new children to our school came to the art room for the day. My aim was to allow them to experience several different mediums and techniques. I find their attention is limited if they spend too long with one medium. So a dragonfly made using collage, paint, marker pen and pastel worked a treat.  They worked on large paper after their initial observational drawing of a dragonfly. They managed cutting the heavy brown paper admirably. Probably because it held it's shape well.


  1. Dragonflies! My favorite! I can't wait until it warms up around here and all my dragonfly friends start zipping about my garden! :)

  2. You lucky thing. I see them about 2 or 3 times a year. Often dead. I've used photos, where the real thing would be so much better.
