Level 2 Art – Sci-Fi Space Art

Standard

Schooled in Love:  Sci-Fi ArtWhen we started this piece, I was really excited.  Something inside me loves to be a messy artist, so when it came to the cling-wrap method of making textured paper, I was beside myself with glee.  The kids, however, liked the squishy part of moving the paint around, but didn’t like the part when they had to scrunch it all up.  I got this idea from Dynamic Art Projects for Kids, by Denise Logan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make sure you lay a lot of news paper and use HEAVY cardstock for this project!

We've blobbed our paints, covered it with cling-wrap, and tugged and pulled to make some great wrinkles!

Now to begin creating far-away galaxies:

See that little, white "F" in the corner?  Well, I forgot to have the kids write their names on their papers, so I had them write an initial with paint.  It'll be covered up later, anyway.

How about a little sci-fi city for your sci-fi planet?

Try using different sizes of cardstock to achieve different lengths for your city.

Don’t forget to give your city a force field – because we all know there’s no breathable air in cities that are on outer space planets in sci-fi movies.  Oh, and force fields are glowy.
