Getting ready to paint. Laying out the newspaper to protect the tables from paint.
Once we had the tables covered with paper and our painting shirts on we looked at some sponged backgrounds. Other people were going to paint on bright yellow paper instead.
We had looked at a lot of bird pictures, so we talked about the body parts we needed to include in our pictures of our marvellous colourful bird!
