Yr.6 painted canvases today using acrylic paints. They chose to either paint Stella, the border collie, who belonged to the main character, Michael or the orangutans from Kensuke’s Kingdom. As you can see we have some very talented artists in Yr.6 and the canvases look lovely displayed in our classroom.
