First a blank canvas for everyone...
Next lots of blue X's. We learned this technique is call cross hatching.
More X's. Greens X's go on top of the blue X's to make the background of our art.
We were such good listeners! Small purple dots are flower petals. Add a head and some stripes and it is starting to like a bee!
Bees need wings!
Paint the wings, eyes on the side of the head (ask your child how many eyes a bee has), legs and an antennae...
They are not fingers. What did Ms. Deb teach about the bees? What are the 'fingers' called? What do the bees do with them?
A bee hive, a taste of honey and a walk in the fairy gardens made for a wonderful trip to the Potting Shed Art Studio!
