Paint is a great way for all ages to creatively express their ideas and feelings. Explore how paint works, with and without a brush!
Wear clothes that can get messy. Cover a flat surface with newspaper. Pour a little bit of Crayola® Washable Kid's Paints on your paper. Roll it around with a finger or the tip of a Crayola So Big Brush. What kinds of marks can you make?
Drip the paint from the bristles of the brush. Try making tiny drips and large splats. Tap the brush on your finger to spatter the paint. Etch designs in the paint with the handle of the brush. Dip your finger in the paint and move it around.
Try gently blowing wet paint. Or use a straw to blow paint. Can you get it to move on the paper? Dry.
Look back at your painting. Can you identify any shapes, patterns, or colors? Could your work be similar to paintings by famous Abstract Expressionists such as Mark Rothko or Helen Frankenthauler?
Think about your mood while you were painting. What ideas and feelings does your work express?
