You Can Paint with What??!!

To create the backgrounds of their self-portrait pictures, 1st graders spent class time today working in stations.  Each station contained a different color of paint, along with a different tool to paint with.  It's all about exploration and learning how to use different tools to create different marks on their paper.   

Red table= red paint and small cups and straws (to make circle prints)

Orange table= orange paint with corrugated cardboard

Yellow table= yellow paint with sponge stampers

Green and Blue table= blue and green paint with forks and q-tips

Purple table= purple paint with bubble wrap

Splatter paint table= to create splatter paint matts for their portraits

Next week, we will finish up their self-portraits and start assembling these to create stand-out masterpieces!!!
