Art Ideas

Post by buds » Wed Feb 26, 2014 12:18 am

I totally second Imami's idea on the mosaic art. It will turn out beautiful. :love: Easier to work with this if using a bigger focus object for first timers be it using tiles or strips of paper. You can also use torn coloured paper rolled up into small balls.

More art ideas from auntie buds that doesn't require drawing. :wink:

Leaf printing..

Either into a drawing (like this one - into a tree)
Other variations are many leaves forming a big heart shape..
Or leaf printings that can form a fish shape...

Image

Or use the leaf printing for repeated pattern. I had to this for one of the exam options.

Image

Dot art..

Can use markers..
Image

Or better still just use lotsa dot stickers to form an abstract piece.
Image

Flower Petal Art..

If you have lotsa flower petals falling off your plants in our hot weather, use them to form beautiful animals or flower shapes.

Image

Melted wax..

Other considerations (with supervision though) can be working with melted wax. This will result in nice textured work. :love: Melted crayons will work too! :D

Image

Sun Catchers will look like nice stained glass projects.

Sand drawings, either with store bought coloured sand or free sand from the beaches or parks. Use UHU glue to draw on paper and spread sand over them. Wait for them to dry. They will result in textured drawing as well. If sand is too ma fan, then glitter glue will be as interesting.

Hope some of these ideas might help. :smile:

The eyes can go quite cuckoo too. Must use large markers or large stickers. If not just cut out potato-circle-stamps oso can.

I realised the dots must be placed close to each other, then the whole pic will look nice. My attempt really sucks, :rotflmao: I no need to submit to teacher.

I think markers n stickers do not come in so many colours right? unless go to the arty shops to buy?

Just tried using marker: the ink spreads out. The original little gaps now all gone.

Mickey dual markers has both broad tip and fine tip. Very colourful dark colours.

Dot stickers popular has. In reds, greens, blues and yellows. Comes in different sizes.

Wait a minute? :skeptical:
Why are you doing ah boy's art work? :idea:

Those dot art started out n best used with Dot Art markers..

But too costly.

So can improvise using other available materials with similar concept.
