I love constructing multimedia art projects with my students. Especially when it involves putting the child into the picture.
Here is a winter art project that your children will love! You will need:
White construction paper
Colored construction paper
White tempura paints
Start off by having the children paint stripes of dark colors across the majority of the paper (I had the students use shades of blue, purple, and black). After the paint dries, they will use a permanent marker to draw thin, winter trees on the paper. Use white tempura paint to make snow using a paint brush to make snowy mounds at the bottom of the page and the Q-tip to make snowflakes in the sky. While the paint dries, take a picture of each child posing as if they are standing outside catching snowflakes. After the painting is dry, they can glue themselves on the page and use bits of construction paper to give themselves a winter hat, scarf, or boots.
I really love this art project for it’s use of different mediums and techniques, and the children love it because they get to incorporate themselves into the winter scene. I think your kids will love it too!
