They picked a color and covered the canvas. then i outlined their initials, and they painted those with another color. I let them choose an "object" to add to it. Jake wanted outer space, and a small letter. So he painted stars and planets. Andy wanted a cornfield...go figure...i don't know...and joey wanted a car. An unusally shaped, expensive precision vehicle, from Europe. yOu'll find no other quite like it. So I traced the shapes lightly with pencil and had them paint it in, then outlined it all in black. Easy peezy acrylic paint squeezy.
of course, dani wanted to join in, and she could because i had an extra canvas. This is her rendition of the womping willow. brilliance.
