Over the weekend, I held a special art class for tots and their grandmothers. Karuna's Grandma (my mom) organized this class with some of her friends so they could enjoy a messy art experience with their grandchildren.
Here, Karuna and Grandma wait outside for the others to arrive.As an introduction to the studio, I started the kids off with finger painting as I do with all new students.
Eero was a little reluctant at first to get his fingers in there.
Ofelio, on the other hand, just dove right in!
After a little experimentation with our fingers, I brought out some toy cars, necklaces, and brushes to use with the paint.
Pretty soon, the kids discovered the easels and began to move around the studio.
Beatrice learned how to make a monoprint of her painting on the acrylic easel.
Anna got exited about printmaking too!
Clean-up time becomes a whole new activity when you add squirt bottles and cups!
We ended the morning with yummy snacks under the shade...
and of course a little more playing around the yard.
