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!
