When thinking about this project I was worried that the children wouldn’t enjoy the quiet concentration needed to be able to produce work they would be proud of. How wrong I was! I was so impressed with the Art Cabin kids, they worked quietly and listened to my instruction. In fact at one point you could hear a pin drop.
We talked about composition and the children arranged items such as bottles, fruit, vases and vegetables on white paper so that the shadows could be seen clearly. Charcoal was used as the drawing medium. Somes children wanted to add colour to their pictures and so they used watercolour paints.
