Mundane Monday: Paintbrushes

© Colline Kook-Chun, 2016Last Thursday I went to an Exploration Classroom that had been set up as an Art Room. As with any place where art is created, paintbrushes were plentiful.The colours stood out and the careless arrangment of the brushes and makeshift palettes caught my eye. I like that the pots were recycled containers, and that the trays used to hold the vegetables we buy were being reused for another purpose. This is not a sight that would be seen in my classroom as we do not do painting often (maybe once a month) but it is a sight that I am sure is seen in may art classes across the Board.

Do you use recycled containters for painting?

  1. Yes, I do that too. I always did it in my classroom, and now that I’m retired, I still use them for my personal painting. I use margarine tub lids as palettes to paint my chessmen or chess boards, and often use the tubs to collect the small jars of paints I’m using for that particular set. It helps keep down the mess in my kitchen. Thanks for sharing about the “exploration” classroom. What a neat idea.


  2. Painting is something my children always loved doing. I kept an easel in the kitchen so they could paint while I was fixing dinner or cleaning up the dishes. My 2 yr. old granddaughter loves to paint. I don’t have room for an easel here, but I got her one for her home for Christmas. She loves it!

  3. It sure is a beautiful sight Colline. You can see the ones that were painting there had lots of fun. I’m forever thinking of way to recycle things that can be used for other purposes. Lovely post. 😀
