chalk drawing explorations

At a recent Creative Art Play class we decided to play around with a few colors of chalk, black paper and water.  The explorations started with questions about what to do but soon, children were off and running with many, many ideas.

The simple joy of creating marks on black paper left all of the children pretty impressed and excited to rub and scribble over the whole sheet.  Then… the water. First a dip, then a pour and some pretty loud ‘oooohs and ahhhhs’.

There was some trading of colored chalk and dripping of wet chalk paint onto the trays creating some neat designs.

A fantastic example creative exploration and discovery at its best!
