Make art together, then use your creation to add extra special flair when gift giving with this D.I.Y. Wrapping Paper project.
Book pages are the backdrop for little artists’ creations in this mixed media project.
Little artists get moving with this action filled painting project inspired by Jackson Pollock.
In this summer-fun outdoor art project, little artists dip their feet in paint then walk and stomp over poster-board to create footprints and blend colors.
Little artists paint poster board with crazy lines and textures, then “put the puzzle together” by gluing the cut out stripes, spots, legs, and faces of Eric Carle inspired animals. This project can be adapted to any Eric Carle animal, we made a zebra, monkeys, a cheetah, and panthers.
Little artists blow air through drinking straws to move liquid watercolors across the page. Salt is added while the paint is still wet, as it dries, the salt absorbs water creating interesting speckles and textures.
In this collage project, little artists choose from pre-cut Matisse-inspired shapes as they make up a story and create a colorful composition.
Listen to music and draw like you are dancing! In this mixed media project, little artists close their eyes and draw like their hand is dancing across the page. Adding watercolor on top of the dancing lines creates a colorful finished composition.
My son Roger started calling these little creations “Monster Eyes” and the name stuck. In this sculpture project, little artists play with model magic and markers and then add eyes to their “monsters.”
In this printmaking project, little artists carve designs into the back of Styrofoam plates to create their own relief prints.
This charming magazine painting project becomes even more adorable with the addition of wiggle eyes.
This painted cardboard assemblage (3D collage), inspired by the work of Louise Nevelson, can be completed by one individual artist working over time, or by a classroom or play group working together.
