Painting With Marbles

Go beyond the standard use of a paint brush and paper! Create dynamic art and explore colour mixing through painting with marbles. Cut and fit some paper into a baking tray or box. The bigger the better! Roll some marbles around in separate colours of paint, then drop them onto the paper. Create the art by tipping, tilting, and turning! Try some of these experiments:

  • What happens with different sized marbles?

  • What happens when you change your speed or rhythm?

  • What happens if the paper is wet versus dry?
