Earth Day Art Project



It is time for another Bright Ideas blog hop! These are blog link-ups full of wonderful and practical classroom ideas. There are no purchase or downloads required for any of them, and they will feature resources and equipment that you will hopefully already have in your classroom.

My idea for April is an art project for Earth Day. This art project can be done on newspaper to encourage the idea of recycling with your students.

Give them each a sheet of newspaper and direct them in the following drawing:

 


 


 

I used a black oil crayon to do the drawing and then mixed up some food colouring with water for the paint. I find that the food colouring mixture works better on newsprint and gives a lovely smooth and vibrant result. 

 

Once dry, I trimmed the edges and it is ready for display! 


I love collecting and finding art project ideas and pin them to my Art Ideas pinterest board. Click below to find and follow my board!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - have a great weekend!
