I adore art projects that use household materials in new ways. This paper towel painting lesson does just that. A little marker and a few watercolors and you won’t even recognize that paper towel!
Creating a paintbrush out of an unusual material, such as pasta, brings an element of fun to this process art activity. Spaghetti paintbrushes and some food coloring paint make for a super fun art project straight out of the pantry.
String pull art is about as process oriented as art gets. You get to make a few choices then it’s all action and a bit of chance. These fun little creatures start by pulling a string but take it a bit further by adding some details to create some funky looking creatures.
I love process art for kids. Why? Because with process art there is no “right answer.” Not only is process art enjoyable it is encouraging! This fun little project combines some fun straw blowing process art into a artwork loosely based on the infamous “Bouquet of Peace.” Picasso for kids becomes easy, fun, and ever so pretty.
Tissue paper art, or painting with tissue paper is a favorite activity of mine, mostly because activity transcends age. It can be done by the littlest artists or it can grow into part of a more sophisticated process for an older artists.
