Watercolors, tempera, and acrylic paints provide so many options for individual artistic exploration and projects. We will both paint on drawings and draw on paintings. Using resist, kids may draw with glue, crayons and oil pastels and then fill in their picture with pastels or paints. We will create under-paintings and then add different kinds of drawings on top of the paint. Drawings in various materials can be enhanced by adding paint. Many options will be available as the children choose their favorites and explore some new materials and combinations. It will be a fun, colorful, messy and playful experience filled with lots of choices.
