Still Life Painting

Today at Caterpillars the children have been busy doing some still life painting. First they arranged the flowers, thinking about which ones they would like to put next to each other. They  added some water to the vase and we discussed how important it is to top this water up over the next few days. Next they identified the colours that could be seen in the flowers and decided what paint was needed. There were a variety of shaped pieces of paper available, depending on which would be best for their artwork and once they had chosen they got to work! There was some great pieces of art made which will be displayed in our classroom.
