Tape resist & silhouette sunset lighthouse canvas painting - arts & crafts projects for kids

We love canvas art projects in our house. We have so many canvas paintings that I could probably cover every inch of wall in our home with them. There are some that we love & display and some are just for fun. The great thing about canvas art is that you can always reuse the canvas if you want to & we do. We love tape resist projects as well & we especially love working with silhouettes.

You might like some of these other silhouette projects as well.

We had been discussing lighthouses over the weekend & our conversation inspired a need to make a lighthouse project.

For this project, we cut out a simple lighthouse design. You may use our template below.

Place the silhouette on a blank canvas. Use masking tape to form resist light rays coming from the lighthouse.

Pick up the silhouette & paint the canvas in reds, pinks, oranges, yellows and purples. We used watered down acrylics for our painting.

Let the canvas dry & remove the tape.

Glue the silhouette in place on the canvas to finish your painting. The tape resist gives the effects of lovely rays of light shining from the lighthouse. My daughter really liked how this one came out & I agreed. This one was so pretty & just might have earned a spot up on our walls.
