Today I had the studio set up to do splat painting
Just water down some paint (I used tempera) give the kids cotton balls and tell them to aim at the paper!
Turns out I don't have a toddler art group that's interested in throwing much,
Sean and Charlotte threw a few cotton balls...
and Camryn held her arm back like she was going to throw the cotton ball only to just stick it on the paper.
It was so cute how excited she was about it.
Maddy and Alexis stuck to using the cotton balls like paint brushes
then the other kids followed suit.
I decided to just get out the paint brushes since they were having such a good time painting.
|Camryn had paint in her hair and even on her ear lobe!|
Lexi was painting with a brush in each hand.
Maddy decided to work only with yellow, even though there were other colors within her reach.
The kids left a paint drip trail leading from the paint to the paper,
it was quite amusing watching the kids at the paper move to the paint then back to the paper again
|This required hand scrubbing...I have huge biceps now|
The beautiful masterpieces
Hopefully I'll get to do splat painting again this summer with an older group because it really looks like a lot of fun!
