We have started a new topic in art. We are drawing Betta fish and we are using oil pastels to colour them. We were practising blending the pastels to make different shades. We chose a picture of a fish and we were trying to copy the different colours to make ours look realistic. The main thing we are learning about in this topic is colour.
We also learned facts about the Betta fish. They can breath out of water for long periods, they are very territorial so they also get called Fighting Fish and they are known for their bright colours. They are very intelligent fish. The male fish look after the eggs until they hatch and they are very protective of the eggs.
