MIXED MEDIA ART LESSONS FOR KIDS Class #4: "Automatic Drawing/Painting"
Pablo Picasso said
All children are artists.
The problem is to remain one when you grow up.
Children were asked to mix a sloppy consistency of black paint and take a big brush. With a loaded brush children stood 5ft away from the blank canvas, when ready they charged forward to make one impulsive mark. Again, they stood back, looking at the mark on their canvas, loading the paint brush and when ready they stepped forward to add their second mark... then a third and a fourth and maybe a fifth or sixth.
This was so much fun for the students they asked to do this over and over again. You should try it too.
Once the black paint was dry children were given complete freedom on how they wanted to continue and finish their art work.
They were all satisfied and proud of their work and so was I.
