Action Jackson

I have a small but abundantly enthusiastic group of “Action Painters”. They started inside by the sink, painting with their feet. They soon moved on to splatter and drip painting, then on to large format murals with giant brushes and alternative tools. Sometimes they fell in. Sometimes innocent bystanders got dribbled on. They persevered.
We moved outside and threw water balloons filled with paint at large sheets of butcher paper, and tried mops and rollers.
The latest request was to try spray paint.
It was a covert mission, carried out during lunch recess.
(We are having a total blast.)
