Inventing Designs with Rollers and Paint

S began by dabbing spots of paint onto her roller with the brush. She noticed the patterns of dots created when she rolled across her paper.

She adds additional dabs of paint along the roller, planning a pattern of different colored dots around different sections of the roller.

Here she discovers that if she dips the end of the roller in the jar, she can create stripes. This is added on top of her original pattern.

One of the fun things about working in a studio is learning from each other. Here, Teresa helps B try the dabbing technique on his painting.

  1. Your blog gives me the feeling of a John Holt book. Of someone deeply interested in the way children learn and explore their world. I am really enjoying reading your blog.
