An Owl in a Tree - Learning about light & shadow. This took us a couple of days to complete but the outcome was worth the effort. We started by painting the background red, orange & yellow. Then, using our fingers, we painted the tree and the grass in the foreground with black paint. We added the owl on a branch using a fingerprint. We also used our fingers for the moon and the end of a paintbrush handle to dot the stars in the sky and put the eyes on the owl. The kids were extremely proud of the results.
