THIS WEEK IN CCA: NOT IMPASTA but IMPASTO!

We explored new tools and painting techniques in THIS WEEK’S #ARTADVENTURES .

Our 2- 8 year old adventurers mixed sand with paint and used palette knives to make an

Impasto Painting

A technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick layers.

Palette knives help to achieve this goal, allowing strokes to be visible. We also used scrapers and forks to create different curvy, straight and angle lines from our line & shape families.
