Last week we had a closer look at a painting by Monet.
Various activities were set up throughout the program,
throughout the week focusing on shapes, colour and bridges.
We started the week painting with blocks.
Feeling the shapes in our hands.
Creating pictures, building on each shape, mixing colours.

We experimented building bridges using materials from our block corner.
Next we explored the colour purple.
How can we make purple by mixing colours?
Using plastic wrap gave us a different feel for the paint
and allowed some children, whom do not like their fingers dirty,
to paint.

And finally we spent a morning drawing Monet's Waterloo Bridge 
using chalk pastels.

Our student artists.
And our parent artists.
Which artist shall we discover next?
