Painting experiences have provided the opportunity for communication with one other while working on shared projects and exploring common interests. The soothing process of painting is often what is interesting to young children. The pleasant feeling of painting over and over, using a large canvas to have a full range of motion. We provide a variety of brushes and tools to experiment with while following the interests of the group. Keeping the play invitations open ended encourages children to exchange ideas, consider solutions and develop shared meanings through collaboration. It allows children to enter into imaginative worlds, to be creative and to engage in playful thinking. Here you will see a progression of the canvas over time, the children adding new colors and making new marks along the way!
The children added tape and then gold tempera paint over it to create this effect!
After adding some vibrant blue paint, the children added some sand with glitter!
