Art and Creativity

Art is important for children especially during their early development. Research shows that art activities develop brain capacity in early childhood; in other words, art is good brain food! Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and develops cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills. As children progress into elementary school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities for brain development, mastery, self esteem and creativity.

Paper Towel Art

Have you noticed how beautiful "clean up rags" can be once they are saturated with colorful paints? This is particularly true with Liquid Watercolor(tm), which has the added benefit of being completely 100% washable. These beaufiul colored rags are paper towels that have been soaked with Colorations® Liquid Watercolor using eye droppers or "pipettes". Use them in collage, mixed media pictures or to mount by themselves onto black construction paper.

Now, that is a creative observation! I hadn't noticed. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I may even play with those paints(at least with the four-year-old grandchild).

About twenty years ago I was doing some watercolor paintings, and I noticed how beautiful my pad, that I tested the color on, was. In fact the pad looked a whole lot better, (more painterly) than my painting.

You know, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi (scientist) said that creative thinking was looking at the same thing as everyone else, and thinking something different. That's what you did. Well done!

Thanks.

The use of large cathedral replica watches here may be an attractive one, but this could also impact rolex watches store legibility when the hands partially obscure counters. The key change he helped implement was the amalgamation of historic replica watches sale skills from rolex watches in watches store with the modern production and testing facilities. I will like the rolex replica sale function operated from the crown. It looks awful just sticking out there. The strap gap and partly cut off numbers and the whole blandness of the look makes replica watches uk from me. The running seconds counter is found at buy rolex watches and features a blued and arrow tipped hand. Carpet is match the drapes. The breitling replica sale view is lovely. Not halo grade but interesting and finished to a degree that is well above average. I always appreciate contrasts colour and texture in watch movements and this replica watches sale caliber does well in that regard.
