Got a colander? You can pour paint through this (kids, ask your parents first)! The paint can be washed off while it’s still wet. It’s a lot harder to wash it off after the paint dries, so you should have a sink full of warm water before you begin.

Water Marbling

So many things to marble!

Water marbling, also known as Ebru, is an ancient Turkish art that involves using a thickened bath of water to float paint on. As the paint floats, you'll using a stylus, wood stick, combs, rakes, etc. to create designs. Bonus- if you have more paint left over, use typing paper to capture more designs for beautiful art. Check to make sure lids are on tight, and shake vigorously for 30-60 seconds. Pigments can settle to the bottom and require proper blending for best results.

Research indicates that patients with dementia benefit from, “enhanced communication, brain function and social interaction. In fact, visual art can trigger dormant memories and emotions, inspiring conversations among these patients who normally struggle to express themselves.”

Engaging in creating art, “stimulates the whole brain. Instead of just responding to images, patients must plan, remember, create patterns and use motor skills.”
