Process Oriented Art Creates Wonder in the Experience


Last week it rained a lot. It was also unseasonably cold.  I wish we had used rain puddle water to paint with paintbrushes.  Do you ever have an idea of how your day or week will be and then it turns out nothing like you imagined? Ha, that happens a lot.


Last week I shared the idea of using water to paint outside.  Instead I poured water down the chalkboard.  The chalkboard was full of chalk and not being used for a couple weeks. As soon as I poured water down it, it came alive again! The girls loved the interaction between the water and chalk and interweaving it with paint brushes. “How is it doing that!? Look! Look what’s happening! Watch when I do this!” This dialogue sparks  the wonder in the experience!


This week I share some more ideas from the book,

First Art

May they inspire you, but remember, any open ended art experience will do for the chance to win this book!
