Invitation to Paint with Gift Bows
Setting aside paint brushes from time to time to explore painting with other materials is a great way for a child to experiment with different ways to paint. With gift bows, butcher paper, and Colorations Tempera Paint from Discount School Supply, this invitation to paint inspires the child to paint in a different medium.
Simply changing the tool a child paints with can ignite the child to observe not only the different paint colors and textures, but how it prints and moves.
Process art experiences help children become more and more thoughtful about the techniques they use which instills the power of wonder and laying the foundation for creativity. "When children explore art ideas, they are testing possibilities and working through challenges, much like a scientist who experiments and finds solutions. Art allows children to make their own assessments, while also teaching them that a problem may have more than one answer. Instead of following specific rules or directions, the child’s brain becomes engaged in the discovery of “how” and “why.” MaryAnn Kohl
