Watercolor shape bird - On a sheet of watercolor paper (regular drawing paper is fine), children follow a directed-line drawing for the bird. Fill in bird with shapes - crescents, triangles, circles, squares, flowers, whatever! I use liquid watercolor paints. For easy set-up, place watercolor paints in small condiment cups and place in muffin-style palettes.

Collage Art Projects for Kids
Crazy Bird Painting by Matt Sesow. Inspiration for an art lesson. Each student might research a different cultural artform and birds indigenous to the geographic regions where members of that culture live or lived. Create a small painting that integrated the bird-form and art-form. Put these works together as a collaborative unit.
