painting on a different texture

Painting on different textures is part of providing Avery with different art experiences; in this case, a net-like surface to paint on instead of the usual smooth paper.  Here she is painting on some white packing material glued onto kraft paper.  She probably noticed how the paint dripped into the grooves of the packing material and how the bristles of the paintbrush were slower to skim along its bumpy surface.  All part of learning what paint does in different environments!
