Supplies needed per student: canvas (I use the pull-off canvas that can be found in tablets), acrylic paints, stiff brush (very important for acrylic paint), small tub of water, waxed paper.
We used acrylic paints; a paint many children have never used before. They loved being able to mix colors right on the canvas, creating waves and clouds.
Tip: When setting up for a lesson in acrylics, you need to have one palette per student. I used a piece of waxed paper and added the acrylics just before getting started. Acrylic paint air dries very quickly so do this step last in your set-up routine.
Also, the wax paper is an easy thing to drop in the trash when you're done.
The kids were wonderful to teach...listening to my every word (an art teacher's dream!). The results were fanastic as many mothers will soon discover!
Thanks Mrs. DeVore for a fun day!
