The matchstick models continue...

We are learning to plan and problem solve while we create our matchstick models. We also need to practice patience, perseverance and co-operation. 

The models are slowly coming together.

Painting Portraits

We are learning to paint portraits using very watery, thin paint. 
Step one: draw the portrait in pencil. 
Step two: paint our first layer of colour, spreading the paint quickly for a light layer of colour. Let the paint dry. 
Step three: Add more layers to create shadows and outlines, where we want the paint to be darker.
