Roller Painting and Print Making

We wanted to engage children in a communal art experience that encouraged sharing and problem solving. After sprinkling the primary colours on the art table, we invited the children to explore painting using rollers.

Paint rollers are such a fun tool to use and the children were amazed at the new shades of colour that were created on the table. Painting on the table provided children the freedom of space and movement as their actions were not confined by the size of a paper.

Once the children had created colours that they liked, we encouraged them to press a paper on top to create a print of their work.

When they lifted the paper, it was like magic! The plastic cover on the table helped the paint to swirl and bubble and the textures and colours that weren't evident on the black plastic looked stunning in the prints!
