OEA – splat painting

on August 25, 2009
While we were in the UK, we saw this type of very open-ended painting on CBeebies. Froglet was quite taken with the idea so we did it as soon as we got back. I just didn’t get round to posting about it before now!

This weeks theme at Teaching My Little Bookworm is Mixed Mediums. I figure we kind of did that back when we were supposed to be doing tissue paper, so our mediums are yellow paint, red paint, and blue paint. *cough*

For splat painting all you need is paper, paint, some bits of sponge, and something to splat with – we used the back of, er, one of those things you use to turn over pancakes and meat in the frying pan. (Help! My English is fading away!)

You’ll also want to clear a two-metre space on all sides of the splat-er. More if they’re older and likely to splat harder! Soak the sponge bits in paint – you may need to experiment a bit for the best consistency – then arrange them on paper and have at them.

And you may want to strip your child down too. Mine is wearing his undies, although you can’t tell from the picture.

Disclaimer: the pile of clothes in the corner is not laundry but outgrown clothes being packed away!
