Teaching and learning from preschoolers.
Those paintings are amazing - thanks for sharing. I wish I saw more schools that spend time outside around here; I recently worked in a preschool where kids in the half day program got to play on the playground for a meager 15 minutes or so a day. It didn't feel right to me.
Love this spontaneous outdoor art; there is no way to be totally in control of the process. Nothing is more exciting than watching paint drip.
I have the same problem with outdoor art. I try to give them as much time outside as needed but my outdoor space is still a work in progress. And now with the cold and snow, it limits what kinds of materials we can use outside. I am always looking for new ideas like these, though.
We often use wall paper to paint and draw on outside since it’s thicker and lasts longer than ordinary paper, especially when it’s wet out. Both sides of the same piece of wall paper can be used most of the time and the different textures and colors on the front can be a challenge of its own.
