Preparing for a nature based art project last week we came across the  fallen branch of a Banksia integrifolia, Coastal Banksia.  The branch was laden with dried cones. The tree looked a bit dismal and was surrounded by concrete. We managed to fill a shopping bag with cones and clear the footpath.

Nature provides some wonderful materials to use is drawing classes, installations and assemblages.

The process of making art. Lessons in life.

Inspired by stained glass windows, L aged 7, has planned and created this pony painting. Taking time to arrange ideas and organise materials before realising the final art work is an important and transferable skill.  Children often rush their work because adults rush them. Let's give them time to learn and enjoy the process.  Here L has also learned about colour mixing and values, composition, brush techniques.    ...and had fun doing it.
