Water and reflections

Painting reflections has been a fascinating experience for children age groups 5 to 10 years. We looked at many photographs and books in awe and appreciation, as we looked through and enjoyed the beauty and the refreshing feel it adds to an image.  All those who were keen, tried to create the effect using soft pastels, wax crayons, oil pastels and poster paints.

Blending in the soft colors, feathering over layers using soft pastel was so beautiful and was much enjoyable. The delicate touch of paints as the colors of the waters were setting in was also delightful!
Here we have shared a few trial images and are hoping to frame some of the best ones for home!

Thanks for viewing. Enjoy a creative day!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.

I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
