Calendar Art R8

Gretchen's Lesson
6 and 7 year olds

The children have worked quite steadily all day to complete two pieces of work, which will both be offered to their parents as calendar art.

They made vases of flowers, explained in an earlier post.vases-k7.

I refined the lesson a previous class had tried. After the children made an observational drawing of a dragonfly or a honey bee, they drew a garden containing flowers, insects etc. They outlined the drawings with black crayon, leaving a white border. Then the background was coloured. I put the children's paper on a wad of newspaper which allowed the wax crayon to adhere to the page very well.

The children had a choice of covering the whole page with watery water colour paint, or just specific areas.

Playing Topple Tree after the hard work.
