|The days art, collected and presented.|
|White on black|
|Ink and sticks|
The day was very windy and the rain arrived later in the day.
On windy days, and Wellington has a lot of them, the children go a bit crazy. I don't know why.
Knowing this when I arrived at school, I was prepared for a crazy day. But I was presently surprised. The children were very focussed. They responded to motivation and all added to a lovely atmosphere in the art room.
We couldn't go outside to draw the flowers because the kids wouldn't have been able to control the paper.
I provided zoomed in photos of flowers for the kids to observe. They used their observations to make drawings on black paper with white crayons and white paper with black crayons.
I gave them a round window to draw their flower garden in with Indian Ink applied with kebab sticks.
They added colour using coloured pencils, often creating their own colours by layering the colours.
