In october class 5 did a Cave Painting because we wanted to revise the topic of the Stone age man. For the painting we used vegetable and mineral colours: blueberry, beetroot, soil, ground coffee beans, charcoal, chalk, mint and melissa, geranium and rose petals, marigold and tomato paste. It was fun!
