Inspired by Aelita Andre Kids'Art - Painting on Canvas
Chanel and I fell both in love with a artful video posted by Janet Lansbury - elevating childcare some weeks ago. It shows the creative world of Aelita André, a true inspired child - artist.
What touched me was the way Aelita moved around in her workingplace: free, independent, knowing what she wants. Chanel really slowed down while watching the video, she seemed to be attracted by this little girl painting, squeezing, showing her potential. Please have a look at the video below where Chanel shows signs of inspiration by the video "Prodigy of color" from Aelita.
The weeks after the video Chanel asked me regularly if she could use tempera. She created outdoors near the river, indoors using her hands, and then made a step to her first canvas.
My favorite Artist of all times: Chanel
Blowing paint with soapy tempera > inspired by The Chocolate Muffin Tree
Hand painting combined with felt pens
Tempera direct on paper and a bit of 'paintbrushing' direct in the mouth for refreshment ;)
First time Painting on Canvas
At first squeezing the paint down, but she didn't liked it, so it was taken off > inspired by Teach Preschool
Paintbrushing an empty cheese container to create a circle, but it didn't turned out to be how she wanted it, so it was cancelled it with a humid dishcloth
She found the toilet plunger and said : "this is just what I need to make a perfect circle" > see also Messy kid's 'Toilet Art'
Decoration material selected and first tried on her hand before using it onto the canvas

Chanel was also very inspired by her little playfriend Minnie 'Sun hats and Wellie Boots' after having watched their Art inspired by Music - theme
