The paintings were created in watercolor, crayon and sharpie.The children layered their colors by drying one layer then adding another, often in a different color.

We talked about portraiture and how, in "the old days," many portraits were created in a circular or oval format, using painting as medium or later using photography. We talked about how portraits showed faces, necks and shoulders most often, rather than the whole body.  We decided that creating a self portrait with Mom was the subject matter we would work with, especially since Moms were on all the children's minds as we approached Mother's day.  We enhanced our portrait with pattern punches which are lots of fun to work with.

Drawing Birds: We worked on using shapes to facilitate the drawing of birds. The children enjoyed this very much and felt very proud of their results. Some of the children labored over drawing the birds well and have crossed out a few of their examples on the page. I chose to put these pages in, in the old sketchbook tradition of practicing to achieve a better result. The process some of the children went through in drawing their birds is interesting to see.
