Fabulous Wizard of Oz screenprints on canvas by the children at St AndrewsEpsom ECC ages 2 - 5
These art works were made after spending weeks exploring the Wizard of Oz - see http://kidsatkindy.blogspot.com
As you scroll through these screen prints if you look carefully you can find elements of the Samoan fale the high curved roof to allow air to circulate and create a cool atmosphere, the posts holding the roof up, and if you're lucky you might spot a raised floor here and there.
Keep your eye open for some roofs decorated with tropical flowers too.
These screen prints were created by children age 2, 3, and 4.
The screen prints were created by making stencils out of observational drawings of small wooden fales.
Most of the children chose to do two layers of paint - sometime registering the stencils perfectly, sometimes choosing deliberately not to.
The art works were finished with adding details in black, silver or gold pens. They look great in real life!
