Touch Painting

The experience of touch painting allows the artist to explore the wonders of art through touch and movement. Utilizing a print-making type process, artists use their fingers to draw on paper. The pressure of touch forms an image that can be seen when the paper is lifted off the paint surface. Each student will create several images which can be enhanced by brushing on additional paint if desired. Students will use their touch painting  to decorate jars to create one-of-a-kind candle holders or vases to take home. Because we will be working with paint, you may want to bring an old shirt to cover your clothing.
