Last year, during the school holidays, I prepared a few projects to teach them about some favourite artists, and let them explore with a variety of techniques. We got books out from the library and discussed each artist's style and what we most liked before beginning our art. All project ideas came from someone else so I have attached the links if you want to try them too!
First, Gustav Klimt. We used potato stamps, gold and silver and bronze paint, and a black sharpie.
Van Gogh. We used white crayons, watercolour paints, black paper and starry stickers.
Picasso. For this we used coloured paper to make a collage.
Kadinsky. Acrylic paint and a black sharpie.
So, if you are planning some inside days these holidays, you could give these a go! Invite your friends and family after to view the gallery of art and bid on their favourite piece.
