Today during first grade, we read Colors by Philip Yenawine – The Museum of Modern Art, listened to music and PAINTED! What would be better than that?
“The world is full of colors.”
We watched parts of Cave Art in the Tropics (click link in post below) to see the cave paintings in Indonesia that were made about the same time as the cave paintings in Europe.
After talking, we used our own hands as a starting point, and drew, colored and painted to express our thinking and ideas.

Mixed Media Mural 8′ x10′
Moore’s Branch Stream flows through the campus of Park School to Lake Roland.
Lake Roland flows into The Jones Falls.
The Jones Falls flows into The Patapsco River (Baltimore’s Inner Harbor).
The Patapsco River flows into the Chesapeake Bay.
The health of our little stream affects the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
When we take care of our stream, we are taking care of the Chesapeake Bay
– the largest estuary in the United States.
