super sized string painting


Yesterday I posted about that good old favourite - painting with string

Here is the super-sized version:


First the children painted a common old piece of wooden board black using rollers.  

Once dry, they sponge painted over the black background using various shades of blue.

Then came the string painting.  

The children dipped their string in white paint and used it to create these wonderful patterns.

Ta da:


Regular readers will know of our fondness for super-sizing art experiences.  

In case you missed them, here are some others you might enjoy:

  1. Jenny, this is beautiful. I would gladly bid on this piece of art. The multiple layers create a wonderful effect. Great work by your kids (and their great teachers!).

  6. Hahaha, Donna!

    Seriously though, Jenny, I'll bet you make a bundle with this. I have three plywood panels painted white and a bunch of left over silver and gold metallic acrylic paint. I now know what to do with it all.

  8. This looks fun! We haven't tried painting with string yet. I used to be a teacher in a progressive preschool as well and now I'm home with my own preschoolers, having fun doing lots of art! I look forward to exploring your site. :)
