“Ducklings” Art Lesson
Other news

The Children's Room hosted a "Ducklings" art lesson, in which children learned how to make three-dimensional applications using geometric shapes of coloured paper on November 27.

The young participants listened to wonderful fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen, Dmitry Mamin-Sibiryak, Mikhail Prishvin and made a beautiful illustration for them – colourful wild ducks flying over a small pond with reeds and green leaves.


They cut out circles and ovals from templates of different sizes and colours, folded them in half and glued the halves to a sheet of blue cardboard. White clouds made from paper ovals complemented the brightly coloured crafts.

Read about other activities in the Children's Room and stay tuned for upcoming classes.
