Plein Air Painting with preschoolers!
A few weeks ago, I helped my son's preschool class with "plein air" painting. The usually squirmy kids were quite content to spend about 20 minutes painting the landscape of fall trees, Lake Michigan and wildflowers. The experience was precious. After the kids left to go on a hike, I was finishing up my plein air painting and heard some scratching behind me on the trail. Low and behold, four huge turkeys came to see the beautiful paintings too! When you have the opportunity to see turkeys so up close and personal, I am always amazed at the beautiful colors in their feathers!
