This week we did come creative play in the art classes of The Renaissance Art Gallery. Without warning or preparation, the classes were invited to simply play with media.
Loading the table with papers, pens, paints, charcoal, etc. each student was able to pick and choose things, to simply play with media.
One student took me at my word to explore the paper itself.
After using watercolor pencils to draw a tree, she then took textured pastel paper, tearing it to bits to cover the tree trunk with texture.
