I did a lot of discussion before starting this project with a Year1/2 group. We talked about the colours, shapes and the type of brush strokes used. They then used white, blue, yellow and black acrylic paint and painted onto black paper. I asked them to cover their entire paper with the swirly sky, moon and stars and not to worry about the 'tree' or houses in the foreground. In the next session they worked back into their drawings with oil pastels to add extra detail to their sky and add the 'tree' and buildings.
