This is an art project we undertook a few weeks ago, but I have taken ages to get around to photographing the installation. As you'll notice, some are coming to grief.
It was a very engaging project. We loosely based the art around Aboriginal designs. The wood is driftwood from the river mouth. It has been nicely dried by the sun. I painted them all white to save time and to give the children a 'blank canvas'. The children created their designs in bands around the sticks. This way they could do as many as time would allow and still look complete.
