Ink Blowing with Straws
Another fun activity we did at art summer camp was blowing ink with straws. First, squirt out a bit of liquid watercolor (we did not dilute it at all). Then, take a straw and hold it right above the ink and BLOW! See what happens! You can embellish them with writing, drawing or more paint. We also used paint dabbers to add circles. Fun Fun Fun!
Some of the kids also worked with calligraphy pens and inks during this time.
Don't forget to send me YOUR favorite lesson plan for my ART TEACHER SHOWCASE! It will be better if we have a lot of teachers participating!!
