Looking for a simple Fall / Autumn process art activity for the children in your early years environment? This activity involves leaves that are losing chlorophyll – these are abundant in autumn. For this activity, we used hosta plant leaves.
What will you need?
- paintbrush/natures brush
Process art allows children to create without rules and expectations, and it’s NOT result-oriented. There is no right or wrong way to produce this kind of art. On the other hand, if paper cut-outs were offered to the children – there would be clear-cut expectations (those create NO real artistry). Children can lose their creativity, and their work is usually not unique, much like a copy machine print.
I hope your Autumn season will find you and the children outdoors, making adventures, playing, and learning. Happy painting and remember your backyard, and play yard is your outdoor classroom.
