One on one painting joint venture – a bear/wolf with Eddie, for his brother Bruno – now at school!
Eddie loves mixing up all colours to muddy, but by a cunning method – in between the freeflow colour mixup – I got him to do structure on canvas which ended up as this bear looking at a diamond… every thing that he put on canvas that looked like something I got him to follow up, and helped him not to paint/plaster the shapes over so they built… Yes suggestive structuring… scaffolding I think the term is… Raewyn’s studying early childhood education.. one guy they study, Vygotsky, says they benefit from these scaffolds for play and learning so they can explore cool new things more easily. So, Eddie got to mix up a lot of paint, but also got a bear to give his brother:)
It would be interesting to do a whole kaleidoscope of painting with a group of similar aged kids…a Renaissance creative painting Workshop…?

Thanks boy who reported ‘Boyfellinpond!’ to our mum and dad all those years ago! Yes I like what we came up with. ..almost by magic! We do have a creative rapport I think:)
Thanks Barbara! If I only had four or five of me, the things we’d do! Raewyn and one of I would start a hobbit early childhood learning and creating centre… I was just daydreaming with her on that one… 🙂
