I was intrigued and we have a whole box of not-quite new crayons that have been crying out to be used for something for a while. You might also want to check out my newest Melted Crayon Art They're done pretty much the same way, but you can see more details and pictures here.
I especially wanted to try a little Pointillism with the crayons. I complained about being tired and hungry so much that they eventually cut the visit short.
I felt bad later that my mom didn't get to see much of the exhibit and so for a couple weeks or maybe it was just a couple days I made her dot pictures. One of the things I love about these is the texture. When the kids hold them, they can't help but run their fingers over them.
They almost get the look of think "real artists" paints Before we started the art project, we also pulled out a few children's books about art.
These were some recent discoveries from the library.
It's a funny story and has some striking illustrations. Ish by Peter Reynolds emphasizes that art doesn't have to look exactly like what it represents to be cherished. The boy's pictures don't look exactly right A particularly good message for kids who tend to be perfectionists.
I figured Ish was a particularly good lead in to a project where we would try using dots to make the picture. I also showed her a bunch of projects that used pointillism that I'd pinned on Pinterest.
It does take some patience to fill things in with dots. Firecracker started out with dots I should also caution you that you need to provide close supervision while doing this project since it involves fire and candles.
I also wouldn't try this with a group of kids since it does require close one-on-one supervision. Here's what you'll need to make your own: Board Canvas or other background I think cardstock would work.
Oldish Crayons Candle and lighter or matches Pencil Since we were using board canvas, I had Firecracker draw a rough draft of her picture first, in particular to encourage her to draw a picture that filled the space. Then we lightly drew our designs on the canvas with pencil.
Now it's time to fill things in. Start by peeling your crayons. You put the tip of the crayon in the flame of a candle just briefly. If you leave it there too long, it will drip not a big deal and if it's not long enough, it won't leave a dot on your canvas. It won't take long before you're a pro. You want to start with the background and work up I tried to make everything in my picture at least two tone, so I started by loosely filling in the space with one colorOur snowman activity tray keeps the toddlers and preschoolers busy for ages.
