This Wednesday’s art workshop was on the classic blow painting technique. To blow diluted paint with a plastic straw to let it spread and form patterns. To put it more lyrically, to make the paint dance to your music. This technique is something kids love to use.
But art is about expressing oneself.
So, when a child wants to sprinkle liquid paint all over the paper to create more of a splatter effect, who am I to say no? And when the end result looks brilliant like a constellation, it is better than what you set out to do.
In the end, when I made a collage out of the artworks of all the kids, I was quite pleased with the result. It was all different techniques and different patterns, but the idea is, as I said to express oneself.
It is a collage of diversity- diversity of thought and technique!
