Painting - Calligraphy!

To extend our concept of painting, today we focused on lines – both vertical and horizontal.  We found a Chinese Calligraphy book that showed artists painting line strokes.  The children examined the book first and we talked about the lines the artists were making. 

 We then used black paint to create our own calligraphy. 
The children were very thoughtful in their re-creations of Chinese calligraphy!
