I love group paintings.

I began by setting out a canvas I had painted black.  I put out a variety of fall colors including purple (tempera).

I just let the children paint.   I put the canvas out everyday for a week.   I just let it unfold as the children decided what colors and items to add. . .

We added leaves, pine cones, sticks. . .


Some of the leaves and found items became a part of the swish of paint.

The end result was stunning.
