Painting with Dots at the Plains Art Museum: Fargo, North Dakota

I have mastered the kit. Each Kid Quest we have between 150-200 people who participate. That is a lot of painting to facilitate. My secret is pre-packing a kit of the supplies to be used for the Kid Quest. This was an easy activity with minimal supplies including a 8x10 canvas board, cotton swabs and a paper towel all squished into a large baggie. We also prepped painting palettes for participants in advanced so that everyone would get a paper plate with acrylic paint in all colors. I like being able to give participants quality art materials that real artists would use to create art. I think it makes a difference in how the art is valued after completion.
