Summer Art Projects 2016 – Can’t Wait!

Summer is the time to do some projects…it is always nice to have time off but creating a little art together is not only a nice change of pace when the weather is too hot or wet to be outside, but it also gives you an activity that can stimulate further exploring with art materials and ideas. Here are some to get you started.

 

Kandinsky Circles – Oil Pastel Project

This lesson is actually a Youtube video! Make sure to view the artwork first (here is one to get you started) and then get them started on their own version of Kandinsky’s Circles.

 

Weaving With Cardboard and Yarn

We had this project in one of our Hearts and Trees kits a few years ago. What an easy and entertaining afternoon project! We used varigated color yarn to make it easy. Create coasters for your family and friends. Use the woven pieces with dolls, nature tables, or playhouses.

 

Create Some Mondrian LEGO Art

This link has visual ideas and a printable that you may wish to use. Always view some Mondrian color block art first! Then pull out your LEGOS for a fun hands on activity.

Starry Night Ornaments

These are going to take special materials and some patience. Aren’t they gorgeous? I am going to invite some friends over and we are going to make some to hang around the house.Here is the link to the painting to inspire you: Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh.

Send me a photo or leave me a comment if you complete any of the suggested projects with your family. Let me know how it goes!
