Just let them paint
Third grade students have also been working on a unit about native Americans. For their project, I had the paint a pattern on one piece of paper to create a warp and then a second sheet of paper to be cut into strips for weaving. For the second paper, I told them they could paint what ever they would like. I'm now sad we will be cutting up these wonderfully spontaneous paintings. I think I'd like to give my students more opportunities to freely paint. I think I see a future abstract artist in these!
