There were only 4 kids this morning, my two plus Harper's buddy Colin and another girl we didn't know. I liked that the class was really small because I figured that the kids could get individual help if they needed it.
The first thing they were given was an orange sheet of scrap paper to practice drawing what they'd eventually paint.
After practicing making tree branches and birds the kids were able to use their pencils to draw the tree on their canvas. Once they had their tree branches drawn they were given some blue paint to paint over the whole thing (they could still see the pencil under the paint).
Once the blue sky was finished they were given brown paint to start painting their trees, branches and birds.
The final step was to add little hearts. They were given red and pink paint for that part.
Here they are with their finished products:
