Today I spent a glorious day outside, colour-mixing and painting with groups of children at this tiny village school.
Working from the children’s ideas, I had made a quick sketch of their design….church, school, hills, hedges, wellies and much more… We began by blocking out areas of sky, trees, grass and hedges….
Sunny, summer sky was colour matched, mixed and painted first thing today by Y2s… Luscious bushes – colours mixed and painted by Y1s….. Later, just before lunch, Reception children mixed grass-green and stone-grey, then had great fun as they painted with decorators brushes!
I am really looking forward to Friday, when we will be completing the detail on the buildings and the hedges in the foreground with older member of the school. I’m also going to love working with Class 1 again, who will be painting their wellies right in the middle of the painting!
