When We Think of Painting We Usually Think of Still or Film ... This is something different.

In this charming film showing sand painting, there is a shift in our typical thinking of visual art as a still form of creative work.

In this work, that was done in Ukaine's Got Talent, the artist combines real time with music and the act-of-painting itself to form a type of moving art. Amazing.

This would be a great sandbox activity to try with your students. They might do their own viewing and reflection on their work as it advances from start to finish. They could call their self-reflections their "works as they appear in progress" reflections.
