We all loved these amazing autumn paintings by children age groups 5 to 7 years. This was the topic we had started earlier called 'Autumn tree'. We all had an excellent discussion on this topic and enjoyed working on it together!
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!
Children have been exploring 'Madhubani' painting and drawing techniques during the September and October sessions and have come up with some excellent artworks. Here are a few of them and more in the making....
