First the students drew pictures and then painted them.
Then we changed the paper and colored on foil, creating a mural. Everyone loved this group activity!
The painting was so enjoyed that during recess, Yitzy and Yochanan asked for paintbrushes. "We need brushes and water," they explained. "We are painting our ship."
Other 'fixer-men' came to help. A 4th grader said, "You know that isn't really painting. Soon it will disappear." They were not deterred by this comment. "It is turning it black now. If the paint comes off, we will paint it again!"
