I thought I would share some photos I took yesterday of my kids in the studio. I was teaching Max and Henry how to use oil paints and Amelia to continue her use of water based paint. After the mess we made I think it’s best that the kids only use water based paint.
The idea to use oil was started by Henry asking me about putting acrylic paint on top of oil. I thought this was a great question and challenged him to do an experiment for the “Science Fair” at his school next year. This would give enough time for his testing and drying of the oil paint.
So I decided to let him use oils for the day, it was a great time teaching some techniques and working over ideas.
