35 Painting Technique Ideas - Painting Challenge

Welcome to the Painting Challenge!  I have teamed up with some AMAZING bloggers from across the world to bring you 35 different painting techniques for kids. We will be focusing on the painting process rather than the outcome and hopefully there will be lots of opportunities for kids to get messy and express their creativity. This challenge is all about kids experimenting, making their own decisions and having fun with paint.
