Earth Painting - 24 June 2010

A great homeschool activity and a lot of fun (and mess)...

We made our own natural paints using two types of soil, charcoal & turmeric.

Charlie pounding the charcoal with a mortar and pestle

Great earth shades of different textures & colours

Some of the finished masterpieces

These paintings led into great discussions of Indians, Aboriginals & American Indians paintings. How these different cultures all used natural resources around them to create beautiful works of art.
