- Get a piece of paper. Write name and date on the piece of paper. (For the young ones, they may get the older children or Directress to help them write).
- Clip the paper onto easel.
- There will be some paint pot ready with paint and a brush in it. (Note: Remind the children to use one brush for each paint pot). Show them how to hold the brush (like holding a pencil).
- Start painting.
- When finished, hang the painting on drying line to dry.
- Come back to the classroom and clean the easel. Use wet sponge to wipe the easel clean.
If easel is not available, they may work on table or floor. Lay plastic mat or newspaper on the surface of the working area.
