Butterflies from Chile

Chile+butterfliesI was so touched to receive these amazing butterfly mural photos yesterday. They were sent by Lorena Siqués Sambuceti who teaches at “Centro de Tratamiento ASPAUT,” a school for autistic children in Vina Del Mar, Chile. The teachers printed out the butterfly templates and painted the borders with metallic paint or crayon. The rest was done by children ages 4 – 8. The students used watercolor, acrylic paint, little pieces of tissue paper, silk and cellophane. They showed off their work in the outdoor art show pictured above.

Thank you so much for sharing with us, Lorena. I just love the color and variety of these butterflies. I never thought of using tissue paper, but I’ll have to try it now. Please congratulate your young artists on their beautiful murals.
