As a visual artist I love to spend as much time making art as I can but with so many children running around this isnt always possible, UNTIL I get them in on it!
I thought I would share with you a little art task I set my children (and myself) the other day.
After finding a colourful bird photograph on the internet I asked the kids if they would like to make a forest of these birds with me.
We laid out our materials and began to paint and draw together. It was simple fun really and even when i was finished mine the children continued to make more birds and then when they exhausted their artistic inspiration they engaged their imaginations and became birds.
A beautiful afternoon spent listening to the exuberant chirping and flapping of colourful wings!
