This weekend I remembered all over again how fun it is to make messy art with the kids. I stopped what I was doing (see point no. 7 of my recent Charity post), put out the paints, and reminded the kids that there are no rules with art.
And then we played.
Porter is currently learning about Jackson Pollock so they created art based on his abstract expressionist style. No paintbrushes. We used yarn and … fettuccine. Yes, that’s what I said. I boiled some pasta and they painted with it. I think they ended up eating more than they actually used.
