Last week, noticed many children were painting daisy like flowers. Maybe all of our garden exploration was an inspiration, or perhaps flowers are so captivating, it’s just a matter of time before we recreate our own. We brought some flowers and created a palette so the children could consider different shapes of flowers, take a closer look at the way the colors change on the petals, notice how some flowers feel soft while others are more firm. And of course how they smell. We want to focus on getting to know the flowers and only after we have been properly acquainted, then we begin to create our own. We are taking time creating drawings, then building upon those with paint throughout the week.
