This is my favorite craft for kids
tutorial. This is about graffiti art. When I drove my daughters around downtown Seattle, they were bothered by graffiti on buildings and trains. So we started to discuss how these people live in poverty. Maybe their parents can't afford art classes or provide them with special creative channels, such as singing classes or dance classes. It may be that as they grow older, they are in a bad mood and do not know how to express, so they start to paint graffiti.
We did discuss that it is illegal and bad to destroy other people's property. We talked about some of the graffiti we saw were really great! I suggest that if these people have the opportunity to paint for the company, that would be great. It inspired me to let these kids create some graffiti art of their own.
Goal: Create works of art inspired by graffiti and spray paint. Graffiti art is used to refer to images usually drawn with spray paint. These images most often appear on buildings, but if this technique can be seen in a gallery or museum, what would it look like?
Minimum age: preschool
Shape-foam or wood
Acrylic paint (one or two colors)
Art tray or tablecloth
Paintbrush is optional
If you want to use background colors in your artwork, you can start with drawing paper. In this example, the background is painted blue. You can also choose to keep it white.
To help us create the image, please place the foam blocks in any order you wish. You may want to overlap, unfold, and squeeze them together. No matter what you choose to create, it will be as unique as you.
In a spray bottle, squeeze a few drops of paint and some water. The more water you add, the lighter the color and the easier it is to spray. The less water you add, the darker the color, but smaller hands may find it harder to spray.
Spray the diluted paint on the paper and foam sheet. This will be similar to painting with arasal spray paint cans. If you want, you can choose to add a second color.
Let dry and remove the foam sheet. You have now created an image on your work.
Using a black marker, you can trace the image and create a bold outline.
Continue to paint your work. You can create lines, swirls, wavy lines, dashes, dots and more. You can paste your artwork on a drawing to create a frame.
Lines: artistic elements created by pens, pencils or any tools.
The craft we created to complement this art project is a dancing ribbon (kids can wrap a piece of wood with yarns of different colors and thickness). I played some music and we all stood up and danced and moved to the beat.
