WHAT IS PROCESS ART?
The most basic definition is art that focuses on the process rather than the outcome.
WHY IS IT GREAT FOR KIDS?
Process art is perfect for young children, and at it’s core, provides an experience that is open ended and engaging. There is no right or wrong in process art. There is no outside or inside the lines. There is just what is! If you would like to read more there are a few great articles HERE and HERE. But for now, lets get messy! In our house we love a bit of messy painting. It is so nice just to indulge in the colours and patterns you can make with no concern about to final artwork. Usually when we do large artwork like this I save all the paintings and use them as homemade wrapping paper.
Large sheets or a roll of paper
Poster paints in rainbow colours
Squeeze blobs of rainbow colour paint onto the paper in a row. Take your scraper and pull the paints across the paper making a rainbow. The kids totally love this activity, it's a little magical seeing your rainbow appear across the paper!
