Doodle Drawing Art Project

Well were doing a bit of drawing this month so again I chose a fun easy project that I call Doodle Art. I had the kids draw with a pencil squiggle pattern like they were conduction an orchestra making rounded full squiggle's over lapping each other. Then draw over there pattern with a sharpie, balck or what ever color you chose. I had them fill spaces in with different colors using Crayons, Sharpies, Water color makers, Colored pencils and Water colors paints.
At first they thought it was going to be very simple and not much to do, but when they got into it they really enjoyed seeing the pattern and colors emerge. Some added wording or designs in there spaces.
( Materials List )
Water color paper
Water color markers
Colored pencils
Water color paints

Marble Egg Collection Photo Art

Here are some art photos of my sons marble egg collection. He has collected quite a few for only being 12. He has aquired the eggs in many places New york, Florida, Arizona, Massachusetts are just a few. He has always picked them up when we have visited places but actually when I started looking online there are many places to purchase them, here is one I found  Stone

Below is a photo of a Chinese Marbled Tea Egg Recipe that you make with real eggs, it sounds very interesting. I never knew about marbling eggs with tea. Pretty recipe for the holiday!!

Abstract Bead Wire Sculpture Art Project

This was a fun and easy project for the kids. I encouraged the kids to bend the wire into random shapes and to use as many or as little beads as they like and be creative with the coloring of the beads. All the materials were ones I already had on hand. Left over 2 x 4 wood, sculpting wire, wood beads, wood markers.  Have Fun!

( Material list )

Wood base
Sculpting wire
Wood markers, Sharpies or paint
Acrylic Paint

Drill a hole in the block of wood. Paint wood base and any beads you like. Put one end of the wire in hole and bend to make your design. Once you have your wire where you like it put your beads on. Put glue in both holes and put wire in. I used epoxy glue in holes but you can use E 6000 or Super glue. Give the glue a day before you start moving the beads.

Aluminum Sculpture Art Project

Well this was a class that everyone really enjoyed. They all had different ideas a designs. This project is kinda like the one my grandmother did when I was young. Slightly different she didn't have the chipboard underneath the foil but she painted her design on the foil and put it into a picture frame. I still have the one she made me when I was little in my hope chest.

Material list

Aluminum foil ( heavy guage)
Chipboard or cardboard or board
Pieces of chipboard in different shapes
Fabric Tac glue ( love this stuff)

Glue chipboard pieces to big piece of chipboard. Gentle wrap foil around board. Gentle rub with your thumb on foil so designs raise, being careful not to puncture threw the foil ( don't use your nail).
Glue foil to back. Sharpie the raised designs. make a border, make two holes in the top put string threw and hang.

Mannequin Head Face Art

We will be using these mannequin heads for an art project in a few weeks so I thought instead of them up on the shelf faceless I would have the kids draw faces on the manikin heads with sharpies. Look at all the different expressions.
