Which Medium Is Just Right?
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Goldilocks wanted things that were not too big. She also wanted things that were not too small. She wanted things just right. When you do artwork, you want an art medium that is just right, too.
 
2     A medium is what you use to make an art project. You have many choices. One medium is watercolors. Watercolors dry fast. They are easy to use. They have been around for a long time. Ancient Egyptians used them. The ancient Chinese used them. You have probably used them, too.
 
3     Another medium is oil paint. It is thick and oozy. Oils take a while to dry. You would need an adult's help to use oils. You need to clean up with a smelly liquid called a solvent. It smells very strong. It can hurt your skin. You might want to wait to use these paints until you are older.
