Today’s Art Project

Yesterday, I read a post on That Artist Woman where she featured a really neat looking art project called Stained Glass On Paper.  I decided that it looked like a project my girls would really enjoy, so last night I explained the method to them and let them choose a design and lay down the glue outlines.

Kaya designed a building on a hill with a sunset nearby.

Nico decided on a still life sort of scene on a picnic table with a tablecloth.

We let the glue dry overnight which was a good idea because some of the glue that came out thick on Kaya’s picture was still tacky this morning.

After we finished with the day’s learning, the girls got out the watercolors to fill in their designs.
