A great art project for children is painting fence palings for the garden.
The fence palings are normally used for low garden fencing and can be bought in most hardware stores.
I bought my fence palings at Bunnings in Nelson.
Before the art class I sanded the palings and gave them a quick undercoat with white acrylic paint and then sanded the palings again to achieve a smooth surface for decorating.

Then the children used a coloured pencil to divide the paling into sections like head, body, legs.
The children started to paint the background first and the following session we added all the details.
