There are so many ways to work with water colours. Introducing children to painting with imagination and child- friendly and appropriate ways and examples.

Wet paints on wet paper (known as wet-on-wet) spreads and is playful for young children’s first experience. This method also frees us as adults to explore colour for its own sake. Forms magically arise giving possibilities for imagination. It is playful,  joyful and magical. Through doing this we learn about colours and how they react with each other and create new colours. 

the joy it brings, skills are developed. It helps using a song, story  to help children engage without using instruction.

Anything is possible with colours and imagination! Creating splodges, blowing wet paint across the page, adding textures, turning ’mistakes’ into a new adventure. This is freedom!
