8 and 9 year olds.
I began the day with observational drawing of dried lavenders.
We moved on to making a tonal strip.
Then a 4 tone painting of mountains, beginning with the lightest, tallest mountains first. This was working the opposite way to the next painting.
This was painting forests, moving into the back of the forest. I found the lesson here, thepaintedprism.blogspot.co.nz The instructions are fabulous.
I bit off a lot to get the children to make these. They worked well. It was obvious in the results, who had listened closely to the instructions.
