Today We...

For the past few weeks we have been going to an Art Group in a centre that isn't too far away from us.  The group is for home educated children and is run by a centre for art and well being.

Today's session was about painting on paper without using a paintbrush. I used tissue, cardboard, and leaves.  Little Miss used pieces of wood and a sponge dabber.

Last week she painted these paintings:




Next week we will be doing some multimedia work involving everyone working together to make a collage.  The painting we will be collectively reproducing is Tiger in a Tropical Storm (also called Surprise) by Henri Rousseau.  Here is a link to the Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_in_a_Tropical_Storm

We are going to study this painting before the next session and learn about Henri Rousseau.
