Make a paint by numbers picture in the classroom. Push your creativity to new level by having an open mind to new colour combinations in this simple activity.
In the classroom you can team up with another person, one person does the outline and then swap and then the other does the painting. Better still try a portrait of each other.
This is a simple way to create something completely different with paint in the classroom.
You Will Need:
Make Up A Colour Number Chart:
To begin, create a colour key chart of some colours on a separate piece of paper. Be completely open to the colour combinations. Number each colour as you go.
Draw Your Outline:
Use a permanent black marker to draw an outline freehand with overlapping loops and lines. Try to keep this as simple as you can with large spaces. It is so easy to overdo this part.
Lightly with a pencil, number each enclosed section on your outline using the numbers you have on your colour key. Some sections can be left blank, never be scared to have a little space in your artwork.
Time to get painting. Start on filling in the spaces with the colours on the colour key. If you have teamed up with another person, it is at the stage you exchange artworks to paint.
Once dry you can add your artwork with markers or crayons to spice it up.
