Earth Day Art Project

Here is an art project for Earth Day! This 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!
