Winter art for primary aged children

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by ShyTea, Oct 20, 2011.

  1. Does any one mind sharing some ideas for doing some arty / craft type winter pictures? I really want to steer away from 'Christmas' themes - so displayboards do not need to be taken down the first few days in January.

    Thank you
  2. If you don't mind glitter, you could create snowflakes by "painting" a pattern in PVA glue and sprinkling glitter over the top.
    Stencilling to create black tree silhouettes over blue/ pink washes.
    A winter mood board might be nice for display- Children could create collages that portray winter: Experimenting with different wintery colours, swatches of materials that perhaps resemble snow or ice, collecting small objects that portray winter.
    Designing a winter outfit using different fabrics to produce a multimedia fashion illustration-style drawing. This could be nice as you could talk about the logistics of winter clothes such as something warm but waterproof in case it rains.

    We have used Winter stories and classes display a page of the story around the corridor.It is lovely and we find children stopping to read the text on the page.Some of the older or more able children read it to others.We have been doing this for a number of years now.
    You could use a painting from a famous artist too.We chose different artists who painted a Winter themed painting and re-created it using different methods and mediums.We did this once and it was very effective.
