Learn how to do School Painting with Glass Marbles
This is so easy and so much fun!
There are some things you just can't do with pencils, markers and crayons.
Mirror Butterfly Painting
It is like looking in the mirror, whatever you paint on the left side of the paper is reflected on the right side. Try making butterflies using dark colours with bright highlights and finish them off with a felt pen for the details.
There is a lot you can do with colourful paints that you simply just cannot do with crayons, markers and pencils.

YOU WILL NEED:
Black marker for details.
Lets get started:
1. Prepare your work area. Lay out newspapers or a cover sheet.
2. Fold the paper in half to make a light crease before you begin. Open it out. You may find some very young children will need to have the paper folded for them.
3. All the painting is done on one side of the folded paper. Try to get some colour along the central fold line. Use bright colours in a random ‘surprise’ effect.
4. Re-fold the paper. Rub the paper with the palm of your hand trying to work the paint from the centre to the outer edge.
5. Allow to dry. Thick painting may take longer than normal artworks.
6. Add the final extras. Eyes, feet, legs, dots or a nose with felt pens or crayons.
Try not to apply too much paint that will squeeze out of the folded paper.
But just enough so it will transfer when pressed together.
Paper mache is a lot of creative fun. These right pink pigs are easy to make and, once painted with bright colours, look fabulous in kids’ rooms or around the classroom. It is so much fun and everyone seems creates something different and unique.
FAS People Paint
Kid’s love to paint people of all shapes and colours. You can make your own skin tone shades by mixing white, red and brown shades. But it is much easier to get a set of skin tone shades that are mixed and ready for instant use.
Children can now paint every skin colour under the sun!
If they don’t see the exact shade they need, it’s a breeze to mix one. Best of all, Super Tempera paint washes right off skin and clothes for quick & easy clean-ups. Lots of classroom fun.
Children love painting their own self portraits.
This is a fun way to get the creative juices flowing.
Non-toxic and safe for school kids in the classroom.

Mixing it up adds a creative and colourful punch to your artwork.
Here are two school painting ideas that are totally different but share the same basic painting technique. An ideal project for the classroom.
Mixed media painting:
The idea is to paint the key parts of the painting completely separately. Then you paint your background and glue the parts together to make the final picture.
The offers a 3D-like depth and texture to the final artwork.
It requires a little planning before you begin.
Mixing Primary Paint Colours to get Secondary Colours:
There are 3 primary colours - red, blue and yellow.
No combination of other shades can create primary colours, however all primaries can be mixed in various combinations to make more colours (hues).
Kids at an early age are usually only interested in mixing primary colours to create secondary ones, and mixing secondary colours to create tertiary.
Basic Primary Colour Combinations:
Red + Blue = Violet (Purple)
Blue + Yellow = Green
Yellow + Red = Orange
Have at the look of an example colour wheel above:
Black Paper Painting with School Paints:
Try painting on black paper instead of a stark white blank page.
It adds a dramatic mood your painting even before you begin painting any colours on the page. The black undertone seems to enhance the intensity of the colours.
It really does change the lighter colours. Look at the greens of the grass.
A Simple Guide to Using Glitter Paint
Using Glitter in the classroom is Messy:
Glitter is messy it gets everywhere!
Once it is on your hands, it’s on your face, it’s in your hair, then door handles, benchtops, chairs and floors. And don’t get me started on clothing. So why do we put up with all this mess? It’s all about the bling, the sparkle.
Art Teachers don't like glitter. There is even a blog full of help called "Art Teachers Hate Glitter"
Is there a way to use glitter without so much mess?
The simple answer is yes. It has been around for a long time too.
The glitter particles are held together within a paint and this stops the messy transfer of glitter that is normally left loose to fly around the room.
Is Glitter sprinkled over glue or paste less messy?
This doesn’t work either as glitter still gets everywhere because the glitter is loose and still gets airborne.
A fun engaging colourful project that you can spread over 4 different school painting lessons. A great way to get children thinking about the colour of the four seasons. It is always a lot of fun getting your hands covered in paint.

Write Secret Messages Activity Painting Lesson
Kids love magic painting. You can write a secret message or draw a cartoon that the children will find and discover as they play with the colourful paint or dye.
Even better you can teach the whole class this cool art trick. By writing their own messages to pass on to other school friends to discover secret messages with colourful paints and dyes.
Lots of fun that involves everyone.
A great way for new classes to work together....
Inspired by Austrian painter Gustav Klimt's Tree of Life
This is quick, colourful and fun. You can paint simple pictures quickly and you end up with a very bright watercolour effect. The black marker adds a interesting but detailed effect to the painting.
