This week the mixed-age art class worked on oil pastel and watercolor resists. The children began by drawing pictures with oil pastels.
When they were ready to start painting, I brought out a special surprise... watercolor ice paints! Now that the weather is warm, it's the perfect time to paint with ice. The night before, I froze liquid watercolor and craft sticks in an ice tray. By class time the next day, I had an exciting new medium to paint with.
Our outside activities included golf ball, car, dot, and roller painting- and of course lots of water play!
