Keeping the Creativity at Home with MAGnificent Saturdays - August 15, 2020
Today's MAGnificent Saturdays art activity for you to do at home:
Have you ever wanted to make a painting out of squished paint? Here’s your chance to see what will happen and what you can make out of it when you squish paint in the crease of paper. Today you will be creating a Blot Bug!
Did you know there are over 900,000 different insect types known at this time? - Learn more about insects from the Smithosonian.
You can download the instructions here.
What You Need: Paper, paint, markers.
Step 1. Start by folding your page down the middle and adding a few blobs of paint.
Step 2. Fold your page and squish the paint out from the crease to the edges.
Step 3. Add tiny drops of paint and repeat.
Step 4. Add more drops of paint.
Step 5. You can add a few tiny drops around your bug.
Step 6. When you are happy with the body add legs and antennae.
