Wheels and the Wonder of Motion

Working on a large group piece of paper, we decided to explore painting with wheels and see what kinds of lines and designs we could add to the group piece.
The group exploration at the table was extended by working individually on large paper on the wall. The marks made by the wheels stood out more on the fresh white paper.

This young artists found a favorite tool, a caster with a ball for a wheel and a 360 degree rotation from its base.
She was delighted with the arcs and loops recording the motion of her hand and the rotation of the wheel as she moved it across the paper.
The design left in the paint palette.
