We are having a lot of fun in art, experimenting with different watercolour painting techniques. Using the secret ingredients of artists to create amazing effects, including salt, rice and glue.
But the one ingredient that we have most enjoyed is adding a spritz of alcohol spray to our liquid watercolour paintings. The lighter side of the Covid crisis.

Please join us in celebrating the incredible artwork of the children on Spirit Day, as they reminded us that, though we must remain apart, we are still connected in spirit.
A very big well done to parents who got roped in, for supporting your children in raiding the house for materials to create their artwork; for working with them to gather natural materials; for helping them to plan their design; and for giving them the confidence and encouragement to keep them focused for long enough to create such beautiful and intricate artworks.
As parents find themselves more challenged than ever, I hope you are comforted to know how uplifted we all are at the level of creativity you are facilitating, encouraging and supporting in your kids.

Clue: what shape do you keep seeing again and again?
We are about to start looking at this incredible resource from Google, as we continue our exploration of colour.
Join us in seeing if you can find a mostly monochromatic artwork in your favourite colour like the red example below.
(monochromatic = shades of the same single colour)
