Wrapping up our art unit on painting

Our little budding artists spend the evening painting while I made dinner. After Daniel actually figured out that there was color on the end of his paintbrush, he was all about painting. He made a row of green dots and called it a caterpillar.

Joshua was making lines and spots painting Jackson Pollock style for a while. Then he decided to try his hand at a still-life painting. He put Megan's paintbrush and paint tray beside him and studied it for a while, then painted a picture of the paint tray and paint brush.

And as usual, Megan bossed everyone around. She's really in a "mother hen" phase right now. She spent most of the time micromanaging Daniel to keep his paint brush over the table, and not to drink his paint water.
