70  chapter 3 COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL Celebrate all of the children’s encounters and en- deavors with art. Find the joy and wonder along the way—for the children, as well as ourselves! It is easy to create wonderful and stimulating art expe- riences for children. You are providing an early love of art and fostering creative art experiences to last a lifetime! I tell my children, “You are the artist. You decide how you want to create your work!” When I set out the long brushes, they reminded this child of splatter painting, which of course led to him trying it out! This child decided he needed more paint, so he went and got it. The scraper on the foil left smooth tracks, which made this child think of a road, so she got a truck to make truck prints. He then decided to do monoprints! COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
