Even art work done for art shows can be process art. The biggest difference with this art and all our other art is the children are invited and not given as much choice to what they are painting , what colors they use , etc.
Today we started an art piece that we will finish tomorrow. During activities like these I can also quickly assess whether children know terms like up and down or top to bottom.
Sometimes this is hard. Children will say “ it will take a long time .” I reassure them they can handle it but remind myself this would be like me staring at a full wall that needs painting.
We can also talk about shades of paint. We were able to use a fan style paint brush to blend our colors
Tomorrow we will finish this art piece. And even then … when you do a group art project there are things we can learn.
