We did some painting again with the toddler art group yesterday. We had two thirteen month olds and two 1 1/2 year olds. We could paint every week and they would be happy. This is 13-month-old Juniper, above. Her shirt and face didn't stay this clean.
We set out two colors of paint — orange, in honor of Halloween, and dark blue, mostly because there wasn't a black in the set of Clementine Art paints we used. And of course they were soon mixed together!
We started out using fingers with the paints…
But then tried brushes as well. This is Flynn, little brother to one of the original toddler art group members.
And this is 19-month-old Joe, above (with mama, Rachel), also the younger brother of a couple of original art group members.
While the kiddos worked on our laps at the kitchen table yesterday, I'd like to get them back into the studio soon. Our studio table is adjustable and needs to be lowered before they can work at it. Perhaps next week…
I've been struggling with this a bit, because the studio table is currently at the perfect height for Maia and her friends and I want her to continue to use the studio. But at the same time, I'd like a table that Daphne and the rest of the toddler art group can stand at to use comfortably and safely. Such a dilemma! There's really not room back there for two tables, unless I give up my sewing corner, and I'm afraid that's what I'm going to end up doing. I think it's time to find a new sewing spot.
