Before art groups switched this week, Friday (Blue) groups had been trying different painting techniques with a variety of materials. Last week, friends came into the Studio to find a basket of toy cars and trays of paint. We set up some large pieces of paper and began experimenting with rolling the cars through paint and seeing what types of marks the wheels made.
Morgin: Look what’s happening… it’s turning into a rainbow.
Marley: Start your engines… we’re racing!
Gerlin: Vrooooom, it made blue!
Moses: There’s the tracks. The paint shows the tracks.
After friends were finished rolling the cars through paint, they had to take them to the car wash! We used a bucket of soapy water as our makeshift carwash and children scrubbed the cars clean when they were all finished. I think friends enjoyed this just as much as they liked getting the cars dirty!
Morgin: My cars dirty. Got to get it clean. Wash the car and got it clean. Oh… bubbles!
Sasha: We’re getting our cars clean! My car can talk… it says, “I’m at a tea party with bubbles.” My car is filthy.
Moses: Put them in the carwash? That’s funny. Ms.Cushner.
Amberly: Clean at carwash.
