paint a portrait of a fellow cub


paper, paints, selection of portraits by famous artists from different art movements


This should be a pencil-free activity with cubs. Spend some time talking about different painting techniques effects, perhaps identify how faces are not symmetrical, can be painted straight onto paper looking at shapes etc. Note: Some muslim children will not want to do this activity as it is against teaching to recreate human or animals in art / sculpture etc.
