The class had not been to the art room before. They are all very new to our school. It was a day of introducing routines and getting to know one another.
There were several art projects on the go today. As you can probably imagine, the little guys whip through the art at a tremendous speed. The shape beetles were the main feature in the day.
The children had pictures of beetles to observe. They drew several beetles of their choosing, all over a page. I gave them a container of geometric shapes and they copied around different ones, to create a beetle. They used water colour paint to add colour.
