Playing with a background in blocks of color..
These are two examples for an art journal project I'm doing with my 3rd graders. We used large vinyl letter stickers (that were donated to the art room) and cut them into shapes and lines.
After the shapes are stuck to the page, color in the negative spaces with watercolor paints.
Gel pen designs can be added to the top of the stickers.
I have a few fun links around the internet to share with you.
- My Modern Metropolis has a lot of intriguing modern art posts, including this one of amazing photos of animals congregating.
