Recently I spent time as Artist of the Day at Buderim State Primary School with a class of Grade 3 students and their lovely Teacher.
I demonstrated to the children how to draw a Jumping Spider, namely a Bark Jumper and wow, these children knew so much about Jumping Spiders, more than I did I suspect.....and I had done my research!
We ended up with some marvellous creations. There was a pink spider with fat legs, a glow in the dark spider, rainbow spiders, green and blue spiders, spiders with crazy hair and others that were expertly coloured in.
I just love the artwork of children. They are so enthusiastic and creative and a lot less inhibited than adults.
What a wonderful experience that was.
Here are three of the 22 wonderful creations by the Grade 3 students.
