We're always on the hunt for unique painting tools! This week, we set out tempera paints and some faux flowers from the dollar store.
The invitation included the faux flowers, paint palette, paper, and a paint brush. Most of our artists choose to dip their flowers into the paint and then print the flower onto the paper. We thought they looked like fireworks!
A few of our artists used their brushes to add details to the printed flowers. Other ONLY used the brushes to make their paintings, using the flowers on the tables for inspiration.
Once the artist were done painting, we through all the flowers into a wash tub and let them soak for the duration of class. A couple swishes in the soapy water and a rinse was all they needed to come clean! We laid them out on a bath towel to dry over night and they were ready to use again in the morning!
