Storybook Art - "I Ain't Gonna Paint No More"

We had so much fun in this class of 3-6 year old artists. 

We began by reading the book "I Ain't Gonna Paint No More", a very funny story about a little kid who just can't resist painting his entire body along with everything else in reach! 

Then we began a series of stations that would eventually lead us to create our bodies all painted up!
The stations were as follows:

1. We painted our hands and printed them on white paper.
2. We did marble painting like this on white copy paper that we later drew a shirt or dress on and cut it out to form the main part of our body.
3. We drew our legs and used markers and crayons to create patterns.
4. We drew our face and then did watercolor blow painting (shown here).

At the beginning of the second class when all was dry and cut out we glued our bodies onto big construction paper. Here are the funny and awesome results!
