Little Ones
Wonderful Water

There is something about water that attracts us. Water can change the feel of a painting depending on how it is depicted, and this month we are inspired by the calm ripples of Monet’s waterlilies,  Hokusai’s wild waves, and Turner’s stormy seas.

Water in art

Water has a mysterious hold on us. This earthly element has fascinated artists over the ages, and continues to do so. Why is this? And what do the various depictions of water do for a painting? Some artists have even had a very physical relationship with water itself. Leonardo da Vinci took a scientific approach while J.M.W. Turner is said to have tied himself to the mast of a ship during a storm to really feel the experience!

Tips for doing art with Little Ones

• Strip children down before you start, or have an outfit that is their ‘art outfit’.

• Allow them to experiment with materials. Don’t be too concerned about producing a single final piece.

• Bring out one material at a time – this makes it less overwhelming, and lengthens the process!

• You can often use surprisingly simple materials to work with, like shaving cream, toothbrushes, kitchen brushes, toy cars … all things that you may well have at home.

• Never leave Little Ones alone with art materials!
