This Saturday, we will read Waiting for Wings, a vibrant story of the butterfly life cycle with collages by Lois Ehlert. We will also collect small objects from nature to use in our art project.
Back in the studio, children will make 'sunprints', a type of simple photography that uses the power of the sun to make an image on paper. Sunprinting is based on the cyanotype process, which has been used by artists since its development in the 19th century. Objects that eclipse the sun's light will show up in white, with the rest of the paper turning a vibrant blue.
