Waterfall videos projected on the wall next to a mirror-topped table (covered in dinosaurs, clay, pebbles, and water). Children (ages 1-5) are given the option to work on the table, interact with their shadows on the wall, or take photographs with a digital camera.
Water On Light Table
Put a basin of water on top of a light table. Fill the tub with found materials for pouring and mixing. Place several bottles of watercolor and dish soap in the tub for the children to pour and mix on their own.
Feel squeeze bottles with glue mixed with tempera paint or watercolor paint. Paintings are created on paper laid flat or tabletops.
PAINTING WITH FEET
Most of the time I am persuading children not to paint their bodies, when really that is what they want to do. What does it feel like when you paint with your feet?
I made these two drawings two days in a row with a 3-year-old boy in the Upper West Side of New York. We riffed off of each other and made a diptych that I really love.
