In the Sunshine class we used some of the autumn leaves that we collected in the Phoenix Park on Tree Day to create autumn pictures. We placed the leaves on paper and painted around them with orange, yellow, red and brown paint.
In other autumn art we used cotton balls and bundles of cotton buds dipped in orange, yellow, red and brown paint to create autumn trees.
In the Sunshine class we used marbles and paint in two ways to create these colourful paintings!
For the first painting we put paper on a tray and put blobs of paint on it. We then rolled some marbles around in the paint.
For the second painting we put paint, paper and marbles in a plastic jar. We put on the lid and shook it around.
In the Sunshine Class we painted with a mixture of sand and paint. Together they made a rough texture on the paper when the paintings dried.
