Outdoor Painting

It was a balmy 12 degrees yesterday morning so we decided to take the art outdoors for yesterday’s Creative Art Play class!

I set up two painting stations which the children were excited to try and let loose on.

On the deck I set out a couple box lids with paper and bright neon tempera paint with   marbles and cars so children could explore with rolling the paint around to create interesting lines and textures.

The fence acted as a great backdrop to set up our canvas and paper and there was a variety of unique materials on hand to dip into the paint and make our mark!  Balloons, fly swatters, spatulas, sticks, leaves, rollers, sponges and a even a plunger were our tools for moving paint around and the children had no lack of imagination in putting them to good use!

Our grass even got a good dose of color – some lovely neon circles decorated our yard!
