My students and I recently made two colorful artworks for our school fundraiser.
We painted a stool with acrylic paints. I had kids from grades K-3 come up two or three at a time to take turns painting the sections. After the base layer was dry, we used magazine cutout words to decoupage the stool. Black sharpies were also used to outline and accent the edges. Students in grades K-3 helped with this project and I had some older kids do some touch ups.
Students in grade 3-5 created this “Happy Hearts” picture for our fundraiser. It was inspired by the artwork of Romero Britto and his heart pictures.
If you would like to have an easy way to make a decoupaged object or magazine words to use in art projects or art journaling, I have created several packages of magazine cut-outs.
Leave me a comment if you like this post or would like to share an artwork you’ve made for an auction!
