Preschooler Art: Introduction to Mixed Media

We’ve mostly been working with single medium art, like painting, collage, crayons, colour pencils. Each of these have been used on their own. So I decided the other day to show DD the wonderful effects of combining crayons and paints.

First, we did a very simple round Earth. Green crayon and blue paint.

Ah, the expression of new discovery that broke out on her face when she saw the magic brought a grin to my own face.

Next, DD drew a face with crayons in multiple colours and then painted the face orange.

And then, we did a full scenery of a tyrannosaurus and an ankylosaurus with crayons in multiple colours, and paints in multiple colours.

Very very fun! 🙂
