As an upgrade to the previous project, Inside and outside of the houses, we talked about ourselves and our inner self. How do we look and what is happening in our minds, what are our favourite things, what do we like to do most, what we don’t like doing, maybe our favourable memory. Our inspiration was a book by Laurent Moreau, Woran denkst du.
Children drew their self-portraits on one watercolour paper and inside their heads on another. They first used pencils (gentle is THE word!), then markers and then they were taught how to use real aquarells. Aquarells were a little challenging but they opened door into a very interesting lesson. They are so very beautiful and playful, children loved them! Since time was on our side all the children slowly reached towards understanding of these special paints and the results are all but unsuccessful!
