Painting & Drawing Techniques

There are many ways that you can create a work of art - in fact, there is no wrong or right way of making art. Which is what makes it so fun for kids. They can use their toys (e.g. cars, or marbles) to create prints, or they can follow in the traditions of great artists and make pictures out of dots (pointillism) or by using large rectangles of color (color field painting). Use this section to explore some of the many techniques that exist.
