I had such fun in the art area at work today. Last night, while tidying up, I doodled a face on a piece of cardboard. I like to cut up cardboard boxes to paint on as they are great. I left it lying around and one of the children asked to paint it this afternoon. When one person in the nursery does something, lots more always want to. So I ended up drawing lots of faces on card (and a couple of cars) for more children to paint. (The other day I ended up making about ten greenflies with little wool legs, as one boy had found one, it had flown away, and he wanted me to find it for him! In the end, me and my colleague came up with the bright idea of making him one instead, as the obvious impossibility of finding his greenfly escaped him!) They do such brilliant art, I am always so inspired by them and love working alongside and with them. Below is my painted face (I wanted a go too!) The hair colour choices of purple and red were the result of advice from R. and N. The right hand face was a quick gouache picture in my journal.
