Art & Soul: Chinese New Year Lanterns This project isn't for the faint of heart! Blowing ink around with a straw is not easy, but with a little effort, can be done. And the results are usually pretty amazing!
Spring Idea: Cherry Blossom Branches: A little paint (diluted with water), a straw to blow the paint across the paper (which makes the branches), and crumpled up tissue paper glued on the tips of the branches for a 3D cherry blossom.
Okay, wow. Printable lesson plans and online activities integrate the visual arts with social studies, science, language arts, and math through many cultures and times. Very impressive. Spend time - don't say I didn't warn you!
