LET’S RUB THE BARK!
The hundred languages of children: doing art differently
Although this year autumn is a little late, children had the chance to go outside searching for autumn colors. They made a connection with the nature by touching the tree and realized that the bark can be smooth or rough. This was a sensorial experience that helped them understand that trees change accordingly to the season. Children used paper and crayons to shape their own impression of autumn, rubbing gently on the bark. Some of them took a further leap by getting inspired by this experience and then started drawing even a wooden bridge made by logs. The contact with the nature helped them unleash their imagination. Also they fed their curiosity by exploring the yard looking for different trees and comparing them.
