Adventures in Printing
Adventures in Painting
Children also had the opportunity to use the paints they mixed in a new way today. The studio area featured "scrape painting," where paint was applied to one edge of an old gift card (or credit card, etc.) and the paint was draped across the paper. The excess paint could then be used at the easel to make a large collaborative painting. Tommy also used the paints to print each page in his art book. he carefully applied paint to a page in his book, and then pressed it shut. This resulted in a mirror-image print, much like the old school inkblots. He will be sharing his expertise with this process with his classmates later this week.
After a long weekend, the children were vary happy to be back together. Outside, they enjoyed riding bikes and making "stew." The message center was popular once again. Lou Lou continued in her role as message center ambassador.... she now seems determined to send a message to every child in the Brown Room. Hugh worked in his art book while spending time in the message center. In sprite of all the painting and printing, some children still found time to build toward the end of our afternoon. We will continue with many of these adventures tomorrow..... unless it's a snow day. The KW forecast from Caleb and Hugh calls for 4 to 6 inches of snow!
