Outdoor action art...

On National Preschool Day we took the art out... a continuation of Together Paintings, a continuation of the art from last year's National Preschool Day where we created art with coloured ice, and a continuation of projects done by the various groups... hands, birds and Together on the Square - the paint flying onto the paper was supposed to be the bird part of the art, but as it was rather windy that day it made controlling the paint very difficult, as the paint flew everywhere... so something to save for a less windy day...

BUT there was plenty of action even if the children were not squeezing the paint onto the paper themselves...

the idea was for the childrento dip their hands into the paints on the paper, to mix and blend and then create handprints on the cloth... of course this would create many artworks... on the paper and on the cloth as well as on hands...
handprint making
and then the chance to inspect what has happened to your hands...


of course not everyone likes to get their hands messy, and the brushes being used for water painting on the square found their way to the paint...


shoes were also used


and bikes too... so of course the wheels became small works of art as well... at this point the cloth had bee taken inside as the outdoor hands-on exhibition was coming to a close.
