- White card-stock paper cut in half
- Decorative card-stock paper for matting
- Plastic binder sheets – I purchased a pack of 8 from the Dollar Tree
- Black permanent marker – thin tip
- Glue stick
Impressionism Art Project Instructions:
- Give each child 1/2 sheet of the white card-stock paper and several scraps of different colors of the binder sheets
- Have the children cut apart shapes to represent the items they wish to use for their artwork.
- Using the black permanent marker, draw a more detailed representation of the item. If a mistake is made, the marker can easily be erased with a little rubbing alcohol.
- Once the design has been drawn to the child’s liking, use small dabs from the glue stick and put the images in place. Note: I tried using regular craft glue, but it shows through the plastic.
- Don’t forget to have the children sign their artwork!
- Attach an optional backing to the artwork for a frame.
