The new entrants (5 year olds) had a full day with me today. They tend to rip through their work. And they did, although they did a stirling job. They began by making an observational drawing of a shell and cutting it out and mounting it themselves. They had been working with geometry in their home class, so I based some of their art around shapes. Hence the city scapes. When they were getting tired before lunch, they drew a shape they knew and covered it with one colour from magazines. After lunch I gave them kebab sticks and Indian ink to draw with. They loved this. The last art experience was working through carbon paper.
