In שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten) we have started to work on our design for the curtain for our community’s אָרוֹן (aron- ark)!

In preparation for starting our work, we went outside to do color and texture matching in nature. We brought fabric swatches with us and when we found a match we took photos, this way we could keep track of the natural materials that matched the swatches.

Starting to look for matches.
I found a match! It looks and feels just like this stick!
It’s the same צֶבַע (tzevah- color)!

After doing some careful color matching, it was time to do some painting, based on what we saw outside. This time we focused on יָרוֹק (yarok- green). We really love using pipettes to paint!

We tried to be more intentional with our pipettes, letting only a little paint out at a time. Our painting was vey joyful and focused.
We also tried layering different shades.

I can’t wait for the next part of our project, which we’ll be working on next time!
