Dinosaur Paintings from Term 3 2009



These paintings were done over a period of time.
They started with underpainting, added a habitat, then a large,
black shadowy dinosaur was painted. On top of this the child
ren screenprinted another dinosaur finished with features in silver pen.
We spent months talking, researching, drawing and writing books about dinosaurs before embarking on these paintings. The story about our dinosaur journey will soon be posted on our Kids at Kindy blog. http://kidsatkindy.blogspot.com

Happy viewing! They are nearly in alphabetical order according to the child's first name!

I still love how they all turned out. The silver and gold pens were a really effective finishing touch.

Fale screen prints term 2 2008

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!
