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!
