For this project, I wanted the kiddos to experiment with a new and unique medium.  They ended up painting ON pasta and WITH pasta.  What a delight!  The spaghetti noodles yielded the neatest strokes… but by the end of the hour it was a hodgepodge of noodles & color.

I want to always remember that art is messy.  Art is wild.  Art doesn’t need to follow any rules.  This summer I was thinking of dedicating one day a week to free art—  maybe it will be Wild Art Wednesday or something of the sort?!

Life is a combination of magic and pasta.  Federico Fellini
