I love the expressive paintings of children.
This painting is by a six year old.
These painting were completed by the students at the Walker Museum art camp.
They are really awesome! This is the alligator from my book
A is for Alligator Draw and Tell Stories from A to Z.
The students draw with me and then I demonstrate how I would paint the painting. After that I let the students go at it. My goal as a teacher in a summer camp is for the student to explore how it feels to paint, the colors they like, and even when how it feels when things get out of control. I am there just to be damage control. When a student doesn't like how something is going, I step in and offer solutions for them to try. This is a fun, no stress painting class.
