Today, we are introducing a creative idea
for the art work of children aged 5 years and older.
This activity can be organized when you
are explaining to children how rainbow is made.
Of course, drawing rainbow, you can connect
with the story about St. Patrick,
if forthcoming celebration of this holiday.
How to paint rainbow
Material for work:
- paper for photocopying
- wax pastel
- diluted blue ink
If you don’t have material for work, check our material for work recommendations for purchase.
Draw and cut out the two clouds. To obtain a certain texture and to make cloud to become “real”, you can crumple paper. Technique of paper jams and its significance are discussed in the article: fields of sunflowers.
Draw rainbow and color it with wax pastels. Rainbow colors and their order, you can see at: rainbow with pot of gold
Cut rainbow using scissors.
When you finished the rainbows, there remains to inflict diluted blue ink using sponge bath. Rainbow colors remain the same because the blue ink does not penetrate the wax pastels. Diluted blue ink fills gaps which further embellishes children’s art work.
Attach the clouds and rainbows are ready for the exhibition.
