We had a fun afternoon in our art studio today making…Splat Art!
First we squeezed blobs of different coloured paint onto our card. We talked about the colours we could see before hiding them under circles of cotton wool.
Next came the fun bit. We hit the circle with a plastic hammer and watched the paint go splat!
We experimented with tools and hitting to try and make the biggest splat!
Then we took away the circles and looked at our pictures.
Finally we mixed the paint together with our fingers to see what colours we could make.
We had lots of fun making our splatter art. Why not continue having fun with paint at home?
Try painting with tools from around the home – spoons, mashers and spatulas make great painting tools. Playing with finger paints is a really good way to explore what happens when you mix colours.
