Key competencies

Participating and contributing, Relating to others, Thinking

This was the initial session of our art project. The children were adjusting to new people in the room and to being filmed. They quickly came to terms with the changes and once they knew what was expected of them, took up the challenge. The students explored colour mixing, painting techniques, making choices about colours and textures, and applying paint. They were able to talk about what they were doing and to talk to each other.
