If a picture is worth a thousand words, what words come to mind when you see this picture?
This 1969 mural by John F. Morrell shows four people of different races and genders sitting together. Over time the elements have damaged the original mural so in the early 1990s, Cleveland officials made plans to replace the damaged mural but supporters launched a #PeacefulProtest and the city restored it instead. #ClevelandRocks

What a fabulous idea from Becky Walton. Sticky back plastic stuck to a wall or fence panel with sticky tape in the corners - then let the kids get creative; sticking collage items to it to make a beautiful masterpiece! A large outdoor art project using natural items such as leaves, sticks, feathers, petals would be brilliant! 🍁 🍂 🍃 #outdoors#outdoorart#preschool#preschoolteacher#eyfs#earlyyears#creative#ideas
Playing in the rain is always fun. It's not raining today so I have an experiment set up for later but here are a few pictures of our rainy day fun.
We used watercolour paints ontop of a piece of paper and left it out in the rain to see how the colours ran, Alfie was impatient and decided to pick them up and draw with the paints himself which was messy and fun.
He also used to love collecting rain using lots of tubs and bowls to see how much he could collect. .
OUTDOOR KAWAKAWA Sculptures.. This body of work is a play with how we view nature compared to how we view ourselves, man. We can see a tree showing its experience and age with knots, bulges and carbuncles and still see the beauty that is contained. Though when it comes to humans we have a tendency to forget that we are part of nature, we allow no imperfections.
Through these Kawakawa carvings I aim to see the beauty of the whole, not simply to isolate the perfect..I love the shadow and pattern that these works 'throw' onto the walls..It is as though the imperfection of the holes only adds to their beauty.
Sculptures suitable for all outdoor conditions.
