Process Art for Kids (Art Studio Diaries # 1)

I have a hundred stories and a thousand pictures from my Art Studio that I have been conducting this Summer! But the laptop crashed (which is actually great, cuz I have a brand new one now!) and being laptop-less for a few weeks mean sifting thru a deluge of photos all at once. Before I get into specifics  of what went down (I will, soon!), I want to shoot out a post on the process art that the kids been loving. 

Process Art literally means no goal or end product, with the focus being on the process of creating art. By those standards MOST art done at home with my 3 year old is process art! but many times there are at least *some* 1 or 2 step instructions, such as in Vaseline Resist Art or Marbling Paper

At the start of the session, I keep canvas and squeezy bottles filled with thickened paint paste in front of them (thickened with white flour). There’s of course copious amounts of paints in containers and a lotta brushes out too. 

The results can be breathtaking! So here are some pictures:
