This year we are doing Adventures in My Fathers World, included in that is “I Can Do All Things” art lesson book. We did assignments out of there to start off our homeschool week. The lessons are good but it starts out with coloring and drawing and my boys were dying to paint something. So I headed over to Pinterest and searched for Kids Painting, got so many great results but one piqued my interest. It was a paper with swirls, dots, waves and stripes. I thought it would be a perfect, easy and fun lesson with the boys. The original post is here at Be a Fun Mum.
I set the table up while they were all on break. I usually have them share paint and brushes but that never turns out the way I imagine it can. This time, everyone got their own palette and a variety of brushes.
I asked them to watch me paint the different items and then told them they could make any kind of painting they wanted as long as they used dots, stripes, waves and swirls.
They liked being able to have freedom with their painting, I liked that they actually incorporated the items into their creations.
This was fun! I even got in on the action, what a blast! Thanks to “Be A Fun Mum“!
