Berry-Fantastic Art Making

Strawberry by Christy Berry

There is an upcoming strawberry festival in the town next to us this weekend and we are excited to go.  Of course there are lots and lots of strawberries to purchase; it has been a very good year.  Our small berry patch has given us many tasty treats; however, not enough to freeze and make our pies.  We also go for all the arts, crafts, and entertainment.

So this past week I have had my eldest daughter and her friends, along with my middle daughter create strawberry paintings.  They were so focus you could hear a pin drop.  First time all week they were quite.  A couple of days ago we observed strawberries. One of the friends had never eaten a strawberry before.  I asked her mom and she said it was ok for her to try it. I didn’t want and food allergies to emerge all of a sudden. She took tiny bits and thought it was good.

All of them learned about runners and how to take pictures.  They then sketched out their ideas first and practiced.  Today they drew out their plans, applied sharpies and paint.  They also reflected on the processes.  They had a blast making their strawberry paintings.  My six year old was first to be done but she stayed focused for more than an hour; this was her second painting.

For anybody who would like purchase a copy of this lesson actually geared in a classroom setting click here.

Artfully,

Mrs. Berry
