Wet-on-wet painting creates a wonderful way for our tamariki to experience the process of painting – the child’s experience and discovery of colour – rather than creating a picture as an end product. The watercolours allow for children to feel free to create and experiment without the limitations of preciseness in form or shape.
“Wet-on-wet painting allows for fluid mixing and movement on the paper. Colours bleed one into another, they move and creep and spread. They play, they grow, they seem to have life.” – Donnie Webber
