Painting Without Brushes

Painting without brushes is one of our favorite activities and we do it quite often. Usually its something as simple as a standard sheet of construction paper and one non-brush tool for painting. Occasionally I like to think a bit larger in scale. There is no shortage of ideas out there, if you’re interested in painting without brushes.

The following are images from one impromptu painting activity. I put this together in less than 5 minutes one afternoon when our neighbor’s daughter came over to play and all three children were starting to get a bit edgy from the heat. The items were all pulled from our art room and toy bins. The result was a roaring success as it did what it was intended to do: put the children in a happier, more cooperative mood. They painted for about an hour before moving on to their next form of play, mud sculptures.

Although I normally offer explanations of the images I share, I believe these images need no explanation.
