This adorable little book celebrates the creative process with simple but powerful descriptions and really beautiful illustrations. Marisol is at first worried that she won't be able to paint the sky because she has no blue paint, but then she discovers that the sky can be almost any colour depending on when you look up! After hearing the story the Doodlebugs really understood that the sky doesn't have to be blue and then we talked about what kinds of colours we might use to paint the sky!
Then they got down to creating their watercolour skies which turned out really quite beautiful. They also drew and coloured a picture of themselves arms outstretched and cut and stuck it onto the background to mimic the last picture in the book!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
