Art Beat: Beautiful Oops

Beautiful Oops, by Barney Saltzberg, is a sweet book that shows how we can make masterpieces from our mistakes.  A torn piece of paper turns into a green alligator, a coffee stain into a frog, and a spill into endless possibilities.  The beautiful thing about art, is that there are no mistakes. Just problem solving!

Here is a YouTube video of the whole book:

The other day, I gave Vivienne a coloring sheet with a heart on it.  She didn't want to color it in.  Instead, she wanted to paint over it.  I let her explore her materials and paint colors.  The result was magnificent.
