We crafted canvas wall hangings today and the kids chose to do flowers or fish...but only if they promised to use lots of color! For the flowers we talked about concentric circles or ovals and the fish was all about simple shapes joined to make an image.

We also talked about balance and placement of color...
Et voila! Here are today's masterpieces!
