Spray Paint Fun

We have been exploring art mediums and here is one simple idea that creates great results for any age. A spray bottle with watered down tempera paint and paper. You can use only one paint color like we did, or you can have the children use different colors. You can do it as an individual project or get a big paper and do it as a group project. Children can mix colors to create another color.

The bottom line is to let them drive the experience and have fun. The inquiry can be about artwork, expressing ourselves through abstract art, art mediums, art techniques, or even color mixing with a science focus. If the focus is science we can also investigate why the colors run down the paper.
