Tape and Sticker Pictures
box of stickers
This was a super fun art project that I forgot to blog about earlier. We did this at the summer art class I taught at my school. Tape and sticker pictures. I wrote about tape and sticker pictures earlier which I love to do with my 20 month old daughter. The above picture is a box of stickers I made. I took some sticky address labels, and color photocopied some patterned paper onto the sticky labels. Then, I cut them into strips, so the stickers would be little squares and rectangles. The kids used these stickers plus all types of colored tape to make pictures! There is a wide range of colored tapes you can buy from art catalogs. Thin, thick, medium sized, neon colored.. etc. I also had some alphabet rubber stamps that some of the kids chose to use on their pictures. I didn't give the kids any restrictions, because I wanted this to be an exploration of their creativity... of what they could do with a line...how they could arrange stickers and colors to make a cohesive picture... These were done by kids in grades K-4.
