From the moment I first came across this little book I knew I had to read it to my Picassos and paint that silly (sorry Petunia) goose.
You see, Petunia has a bit of a hang up about being called a silly goose, so when she came across a book in the field, she decided to take it everywhere so people would think she was wise. The plan worked and the barnyard animals all looked to Petunia for advice because of her new wise personna... and well you can guess what happens. I just think this is such a neat little moral, especially at the start of the school term, and it's told in an engaging and funny way! Take a look at the video up above to see what I mean!
We painted the cover picture for this lovely little story by first sketching our goose and painting the background with the details first. Since the goose is mostly white, she was left blank and the details were put in at the very end with black paint. I also challenged some of my Picassos to add a few details to Petunia to bring out her personality in the picture.
Take a look at our results!
Thursday Picassos met Petunia today :) Take a look at some of our newly minted Picassos and some of our 'old hats' ;P
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 :)
