Art Hour, again!

For this Art Hour session, we kept it simple, yet with lots of room for creativity and experimentation. We tested out painting with lots of different tools, including bath poofs, fake flowers, dish scrubbers, dish sponges, paint rollers, and, of course, a variety of actual paintbrushes.

I think I’ve posted about this before, but I’ve been using a lot more open-ended, process-focused art projects than pre-prepared, cookie cutter crafts, and the results have been great! The kids get to be creative, and I get to throw things on the tables and see what they are into. Win-win, if you ask me!

Here are pictures of the different stations:

Kids got to carry their picture from station to station and use the different paints and tools at each to make a unique masterpiece.


Here are a couple of the day’s creations!


Art Hour    

We had lots of fun at Art Hour this week! We had a few different stations, with different art supplies to try out! I’ve been trying out more “process art” things lately, and I’ve found that the kids and parents are really running with the open-ended-ness of the art projects. Plus, it’s SO easy for me– All I have to do is cover tables and get out art supplies! Here are some pictures of a few of our stations:

Liquid Watercolor in Spray Bottles


Variety Paintbrushes and Stamps



…featuring these AWESOME Tri-Color Crayola washable markers. These were SUCH a hit!


Cleanup was a doozy, and the carpet may or may not now have liquid watercolor speckles on it, but it was well-worth it! We will be repeating this program two more times over the summer, with different art supplies.
