Abstract Art Effect Created by Pipettes

The children created abstract designs by squirting liquid watercolors all over paper towels.

We prefer to use glass containers, because one gets to experience the true colors of paint this way. BABY FOOD JARS are perfect paint containers! These jars are just the right size for children to hold and move around, while they are at work. At the same time, you get to recycle and reuse them.

Vibrant colors and the opportunity to create wild designs gave the children a fun way to learn color mixing.

    1. Hi Kierna, I normally buy my liquid paints from Discount School Supply, but I recently discovered Washable Watercolor Magic from Sargent Art. The colors are more vibrant.Here is the link, http://www.sargentart.com/sa/p-wp-glitterpaint.asp

    2. Hi, Can you explain the layering? Also, do the paper towels rip from the weight of the water?

  12. Hi Maria! My name is Jordan. I am working on an Activities Binder for my Creative Activities for Young Children course at Eastern Kentucky University. I was wondering if I could use a few picture that you have posted to include into this binder? The only pictures I would like to use are from This activity, I'm Printing activity, and the Rolling Pin Painting activity. If you would allow me to share these activities with my professor that would be awesome!
