D.I.Y. Wrapping Paper

Make art together, then use your creation to add extra special flair when gift giving with this D.I.Y. Wrapping Paper project. 

Drawing on Pages

Book pages are the backdrop for little artists’ creations in this mixed media project. 

Painting with Feet

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. 

Eric Carle Inspired Animals

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.

Painting With Air

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.

Dance Drawings

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.

Monster Eyes

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.”

Styrofoam Plate Prints

In this printmaking project, little artists carve designs into the back of Styrofoam plates to create their own relief prints.
