Creating Mesmerising Marble Paintings in Art & Crafts!
Our home-schooled children have been creating some wonderful abstract work of art focusing on Marble painting.
Marbling has been around for over 1000 years, with beautiful examples in ancient Turkish and Japanese texts.
It is known as Suminagashi in Japan.
Today there are artists who specialise in ancient marbling techniques.
This was a fun and easy marble activity that allowed the children to self-direct their learning, while enhancing hand-eye co-ordination.
The children got to create swirling patterns of pigment on water and captured them on paper.
