Silk Painting

Justine and Francis are working with the children to explore Silk Painting. The aim is to create illustrations for our new book. In 2008 Manaia Kindergarten published its own book - Our Mountains and the Kiwi - you can see that book in our kindergarten library, illustrated by children's oil paintings. This year we have decided to publish another book about the sea. We will be using the medium of silk painting. We began by just exploring how the silk paint moves, spreads and blends on the silk. It was a soothing, peaceful start to our work with silk. We had no object in mind - but to explore...

We will also share our preparation drawings for our silk paintings.
