Today a new group of children started session 1- our painting exploration. I first invited them to paint with their fingers and, just like the last group, they were very hesitant to get their hands in there! So I offered them to do texture painting with objects like necklaces and toy cars, which got them to slowly slip their fingers into the paint- much less threatening! Eventually some of them were dipping there entire hands in the paint and even rubbing it up and down their arms.
Here, Liam eyes Jordan and her blue hands.
Two different approaches to painting with a comb
At the easel, Hanna danced in between her brushstrokes. I really wish I could have gotten it on video! This photo does not do her her dancing justice.
