Invitation to Scraper Paint Abstract Art
Updated: Nov 14, 2020
The power of wonder and laying the foundation for that creativity through the process of art is essential to children. "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
Discount School Supply’s Paint Scrapers are the perfect tool for exploring and experimenting with resist art techniques. Scraper Art can be used to reinforce important developmental skills; such as, eye hand coordination, fine motor skills and creative expression. Scraper Art also enables children to explore paint media, color theory, shape designs, predict outcomes and to learn about the important principle of cause and effect. The added beauty of this invitation is that it’s extremely calming and fun for adults to do as well!
To do this invitation you or the child who is old enough need to place dime sized dots or designs of paint (BioColor, Tempera, or Acrylic) followed by letting the child scrape the dots and drag the colors to form abstract designs. I would recommend using thicker paper. This would also be such a beautiful gift that you could frame and give to your loved ones for the holidays!
