Playing With Chalk and Water – Art & Play

In July we launched a new program: “Art & Play” for children ages 2-6.  One Monday morning each month, we focus on “process art”. With process art the fun is all in the doing, there are no rules;  it involves exploration and tactile learning with no specific outcome.  In the end you always end up with a work of art, even if it isn’t planned!

For September, we focused on playing with chalk, water and black paper.  We used sponges and sponge rollers to saturate the paper with water, then everyone wrote on the paper with colored chalk.

Even our parents got into the act.

The Process

What happens when you mix chalk, water and black construction paper? A whole lot of messy fun!

When the paper dried, the colors popped!

Please join us for our next Art & Play for children ages 2-6 on Monday, October 23, 2017 at 10:30 in the Studio on 4th at Pasadena Central Library.
