Any Art Ideas

Recommended Posts

Hi

We are doing some fund raising and in order to do this the children are all going to have a piece of art work framed and then their work is going to be displayed and the parents can buy their child's work if they want to.

 

Please we need some help on any good ideas that we could try out to do with our topic on Plants. We are going to paint and draw flowers but we need some good collage/printing ideas..any body got any???

 

Awaiting in hope

Plain white material - sheeting is good creating sea type piecures with lots of different hues of paint colour - they all blend into each other - you could also put some blue/green sequins onto material. Looks fantastic if you can get some really good colours going.

 

Similar one can be done with "bleeding" tissue paper and create rainbows -children to cut/tear tissue paper, apply to paper and paint over top with water to release colour - colours also blend into each other - makes really good sunsets too using the right colours.

 

Handprint flowers using acrylics paints

 

Sunset pictures using washes of birght pink/organges, yellows with silouhette trees

Hi,

We have had an art fund raisers for the last two years and they were fabulous. The whole school was involved, with each year group making items of furniture or ornaments. Each of the FS classes had a table or chair to paint a design on. We spent several weeks painting it with acrylic paints before they were varnished. Last year we all did hand prints with the children writing their names but the year before we did pieces based on famous artists. I did kendinski's (sp!) concentric circles which looked fab and raised over 150 pounds! They were just roughly made cheap items but the children's designs made them truly amazing. We had a silent auction to push the bidding higher and higher - the children pleading to have the items at home helped too :o

Hi Trudie.

 

What about simple ideas such as Bubble painting flowers, collecting natural materials for collage, planting seeds and getting children to take photographs of them growing (if you have enough time!).

 

I find the simple ideas work better with the younger children but you can adapt them for the older children too!
