We began by reading Mary Lyn Ray's beautifully illustrated book called "Mud."
We had an animated discussion about whether or not we liked mud, muddiness, messy-ness, squishyness....muckyness.
A demonstration was given.
Artists were excited.
We each began with a HUGE piece of paper, some space and.....a bucket of mud.
After covering every speck of white on the page, we used tools to create texture and experiment.
So fun! But this is only the beginning. We'll be using these textured papers to create amazing works of art. Be sure to check in next week.
