I found a long white piece of cotton fabric and thought it would make a great canvas for painting. The kids could explore painting on a different surface and experiment with the different texture of paint and ink. They each got a rectangular piece of the fabric I cut up and some nice acrylic paints. Because we would later be using animal stamps for the printing, the backgrounds they came up with were all nature scenes like trees, a barn, a colourful ocean.... The animal stamping was done with India ink and animal stamps I made. The pieces they made all turned out so uniquely even though we were sharing all the same materials and stamps. Its the wonderful thing about creating...there are so many ways to express oneself! Look at the amazing fabric pieces they made!
