Spring Break Project Idea

Day Camp Sun

In honor of springing ahead, here are some sunny creations from our day campers.

This multimedia project is fun and easy. We used canvas board, acrylic paints, paper, and glue. First have students paint their canvas, either painting a full sun, or partial, using whichever colors they prefer. We decided to use blue and orange because we wanted to review complimentary colors.

While the paint is drying, students cut out decorative paper of their choice. These pieces of paper will be used for the rays of the sun. Once paint is dry adhere the paper cut outs with glue. It is a good idea to paint a coat of glue over the top of the entire canvas. The glue not only secures the paper, but also gives a nice shiny surface.
