As it so often happens while making my own art, my daughter and her friend wanted to jump in when they saw how much fun I was having. How could I resist their enthusiasm, questions, and delight?
I handed over my supplies, gave them some gentle suggestions and a few tips, and they were off! Painting and spraying. Dripping paint down the walls. Splattering. Inventing. Paint experiments. Joy. Unbridled enthusiasm. Process over product.
People often ask me what open-ended art experiences look like for older children and this is it right here. "I don't care how the painting turns out, I'm just having so much fun."
