Printmaking and stamping projects are a favorite in our home. These processes are both fascinating and fun and they are great for the young and the old. Simply enjoy watching the shapes, lines and textures transfer onto paper or turn your prints and stamps into animals, flowers or a unique piece of art. Look around your house and outdoors for inspiration and printing materials. Experimenting and exploring different textures and surfaces is fun. Here are a few wonderful printing and stamping ideas to get you started.
Watercolor Scribble Easter Eggs
Here is an easy and fun bit of process art that the kids will love for Easter.
My daughter loves to draw. She is learning and getting better every day. We found some wonderful art books for her at the library with great techniques and drawing exercises. One that we loved was Art for Kids: Drawing (affiliate link). It is a great book for kids and adults alike. One simple and fun technique that we found in the book is the inspiration for this Easter process art. These watercolor scribble Easter eggs are so easy and they are a joy to make.
Canvas Drum Painting
This is a fun and messy piece of process art that the kids will love. Turn up the music and then drum and splatter and paint away.
We have once again gotten hit by another few days of cold and nasty weather. It has been sleeting and snowing and we have been stuck home, so we were looking for some rainy day fun. We built forts, made things with Legos and played with our toy instruments. The banging of my daughter’s drum gave me an idea. Rainy days are perfect for a little bit of messy fun and this canvas drum painting fits the description of both messy and fun.
