This week during my “MAKE ART WITH KIDS” volunteer time, we were making mixed-media winter scenes. There were qtips. There was glitter. There were pompoms. There was lots, and lots, and lots of paint. It was extremely messy and extremely fun.
The best quote of the night came from a little girl (about four years old) who had ended up covered in paint: “Wow! I have art all over my hands!”
She totally did, too.
Anyway, this is one of the projects I made while talking, laughing, and playing with the kids.
It’s kind of funny—I do a lot of projects for myself, using all kinds of “sophisticated” equipment and supplies. But this painting—fingerpainted tempera, crayon, and glitter on blue construction paper—is my favorite thing I’ve done in ages.
