Still Life Painting

We are always encouraging our children to take time to enjoy the moment. In a culture of instantaneous information, our hopes are for our children to be able to slow down and notice the small details of life. One way we do this is by encouraging still life drawing and painting. This week we displayed an arrangement of fresh spring flowers in a vase and invited the children to use chalk and paint in order to create a still life representation.

Because we are also looking for ways for meaningful integration of technology, we set up a iPad with the Lapse It app ready to capture the activity at the centre. Can you spot it hanging on the white board?
Here's what happened that morning! See if you can find your child in the flurry of activity!

Early next week we are going to ask the children what they would like to film with the time lapse photography. Stay tuned to see what is important to them!
