This week children in Anafim v’Alonim (“Branches” for 2nd-4th grades and “Oak trees” for 5th grade) experimented painting with their etzba’ot (fingers). It was a hit! The children only worked with primary colors and white, such amazing mixing they did!
Each session children chose a new part of the text we read. So far we have read Genesis 1 and 2. Many children were captivated by the part when God places “the Adam” in the garden. Others were drawn to the section of the four rivers flowing out of the garden.
Here are some awesome photos of their work:
Each week we have had a new focus on painting. First, with mixing colors, then blending, and now working with our fingers. I know as we dig deeper into the text the techniques children use and learn from one another will produce incredible paintings!
