"A Faithful Attempt" is designed to showcase a variety of K-12 art lessons, the work of my art students, as well as other art-related topics. Projects shown are my take on other art teacher's lessons, lessons found in books or else designed by myself.
Thanks for visiting!

Blow Painting

Sometimes simple, classic art projects are the best.  Case in point: blow painting.  I don't know anyone who doesn't enjoy this. 
All you need is watered down tempera paint (ink consistency), paper and straws.
Kids dribble a few drops of paint on their paper and then use the straw to blow the paint across the paper.  You get lots of 'oooohs and aaaahs' from the kids when the colours mix together.

You are so right about keeping it simple! Something that seems 'old news' to us can still be a brand new experience for our kiddos...
