Process Art Activities
creative art activities for young children- focusing on exploring the art process
hmm- I know a few preschoolers who could probably do something like this and would love it! This beautiful project was made in a fifth grade art class. Teacher Joanna Davis of We Heart Art explains how it was done using tin foil, yarn, glue and Sharpies.
Flower Printing (learning4kids)
Color Mixing- Color Wheel
Bubble Wrap Stomp Painting - make some bubble wrap "boots" then dip in paint and stomp around to create art.
Printing Easter eggs with a potato masher! How fun?!
rolling pin painting! Seriously this kids's art stuff looks like great fun and would give me better results than anything I could do "properly" wth my meagre adult talents, and yes, I would put it on my wall. It looks pretty. Will use Design seed card to pick colours, possibly use house paint and go all Tortured Artist on my family for a week. I bet they can't wait.
Paint that grows. Mix 1 cup flour, 3 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and enough water to make consistency of pancake batter. Divide into 4 parts and put in snack size Ziploc baggies along with food coloring. Squish it around to mix up the colors. Rubber band like icing bag and snip tiny hole. Squeeze to paint and then pop paper in microwave for 30-45 seconds and watch the paint puff up and grow.
Momma's Fun World: Make your own colored glue with kool-aid - ah, why didn't I think of that! So much more fun than food coloring or paint! A must try!
Make liquid watercolour paints out of old dried out felt tips-put an elastic band round 5 or 6 dried out water-based markers of a similar colour. Pour water into glass jars below the screw top area. Put the colour tips of the markers into the water & leave for at least 8 hours (",)
