Thanks to pinterest I saw a mixed media piece of art that I loved. It looked like something my kids would enjoy creating & is different than the art we typically make. Here's how to make the kid version of this super cool masterpiece.
|Supplies: Tissue paper (tiny scraps are fine), art paper, oil pastels, glue stick, fine tip sharpie & scissors.|
|Trim art paper to 5"x5".|
Then, blend pastels to color the background.
|Cut 4 squares, each 2"x2".|
Use a fine-tip sharpie to create line designs. Before the kids did this part of the project we talked about how lines are one of the elements of design.
|Make line designs on each of the 4 squares.|
|Cut out 4 hearts that are each smaller than 2".|
|My kids chose to make each heart a different color.|
|Lastly, assemble the collage. The oil pastel background is the bottom, the 4 line design squares are next & the hearts are on top. We also matted the artwork to give it a finished appearance.|
