Serendipity Paint

Serendipity Paint

Are you an art teacher? Does it pain you to throw away the paper plates of expensive paint after a lesson? Make serendipity paints. The three above came from one large classroom’s leftovers! Three spice jars, one each for reds/blues/golds, scoop and scrape your paints into the jars to filled, cap tightly. These are great prizes for young artists, or gifts for fellow art educators–practically free, and they’re keeping some paint out of the trash.

    As an art docent too, it hurts to trash all the paint after a class. Love this idea!

    I started doing this at the end of last year–the project was Picasso’s Doves, I think? I painted all last year’s design committee thank yous with leftover paint. It’s not always convenient for me to bring home painty plates after teaching, but if I can, it feels right to save a little paint from the trash.
