Sorry for the blurry picture.
I learned this little slogan from Mrs. Pam Hickman that I student taught under. It used to be: Dip, Wipe, Blot. So with a little modification
Swish, Wipe, Blot
Students learn that we need to take good care of our paint brushes. We don't want them to have a "bad hair day"!
Swish: by making circles in the water. No Tornados!
Wipe: to get rid of the drip drops
Blot: 1 time to check it's clean
Students also know do clean their brush when they need to change colors.
