We received some cool adaptive art supplies and we decided to try them out this week! We got some liquid watercolor paint, tempera paint sticks, and colorful easy-grip brushes.
We used watercolor paint again this week but instead of soaking the paper in water, artists cut tape to create different patterns and shapes before painting. By using tape, students had the ability to add unique patterns and new dimensions to their work. We also provided salt for the artists who wanted to add a texture appearance to their piece. The salt was added while the watercolor paint was still wet. After the paint dried, the tape and the salt were removed and the tape marks completed the patterns and the salt traces added cool marks of different shapes and sizes. Artists were given the freedom to use both watercolor paint and tempera paint sticks and that combination also helped produce some unique masterpieces.
