Autumn tree



We decided to work on Autumn landscapes, trees and leaves, before we get busy with our winter topics and share a lesson with all art enthusiasts.
In this project we used our old paint brushes that have turned 'fluffy' after use. They do come in handy for creating textures and other effects.


We will need:
A cartridge sheet or any good drawing sheet A4 or A3 size.
A few autumn colored paints - poster or gouache
Medium size brushes and a few old brushes with fluffy bristles.

Fluffy bristles help in creating easy textures on trees etc.

Start by helping children draw the tree trunk and branches or print the tree drawing if it helps.


 Fill in the browns.

 Now go dab dab!! Start with green so it looks like greens turning into these lovely yellows and oranges.

 Gradually add the other colors - deep yellow, orange and red

 Let them add a few leaves dropping to the ground. Here I must add that children age groups 5 to 8 years enjoyed the whole painting exercise and were very excited about the results.

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. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.



Durga Puja and Dussehra

Happy Durga Puja and Dussehra to all!
For all our readers who love madhubani art, here is our Goddess Durga in madhubani style of painting.

As the children delve into the interesting Dussehra and Durga Puja activities, here are some of the activities we enjoyed doing during the festive break.
Easy drawing and coloring/ painting Goddess Durga and Ravana. Making a shield and sword using cardboard.Making bow and arrows using cardboard and paper.Learning to make Rangolis. It was pretty easy to draw 'Ravana' with his ten heads. We first made a large 'U' added ears to it and continued till we counted ten heads. Adding the crown and the details on the face completes the heads. Then make the body and the flames and it is time for some colouring.
Now for some artworks created by 5 to 9 year olds during this session.

Have fun this festive season and enjoy creating!
