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! :-)
