Product Description
We start by looking at The Strawberry Thief by William Morris and learn about this British artist. The kids are amused by the birds stealing the berries! We talk about the different parts of a strawberry plant: the runners, the flowers, and berries. The children have a lot of fun drawing the winding runners! I also read one of the picture books as a literature tie in.

They get practice drawing birds and choose which backyard bird or birds they want in their paintings. They learn techniques for painting with tempera and an introduction to thinking about composition. Check out the student gallery--the colors really pop on the black paper!
