A new class we've introduced to our monthly routine is the Palette Knife Night.

A palette knife is traditionally used to mix paint but can also be used to apply paint, which adds depth and texture to a work.

The artist Leonid Afremov is well known for his colorful palette knife paintings - recognize his Lonely Alley painting?

DIY: Quote Painting

Posted March 15, 2013 by Marquin Campbell

This DIY art project is simple and cost effective, yet incredibly stylish and funky!

What you'll need:

-canvas

-brushes

-acrylic paint in your choice of colors

-sticky letters (you can find these at Home Depot)

-A quote (the shorter the better!)

-gold metallic paint

Grab a canvas and paint something abstract on it. It could be drips, splatters, brush strokes, or a hodge-podge of all three! The most importance step in this process is to let the paint dry completely. This way your sticky letters won't peel off any paint

-3

Next, take out your sticky letters and loosely arrange them to form your quote

-4

-5

Now take your gold paint and lightly paint all over the canvas and letters. Allow the paint to dry and peel off your letters

-7

And Voila! You now have a sassy, unique painting that will spread good vibes wherever it is hung

Painting with Kids at Sterling Elementary

Christmas , Greenville , Kids , Paintings

I went to Sterling School for the second time this year to work with two sweet Kindergarten Classes.  We had a fun activity that anyone can do with their child: I supplied canvas board and pretty paint colors that the children used as we painted to music.

Since Christmas is around the corner, I played music from the Nutcracker and had students close their eyes and imagine shapes and lines which we in turn painted on our canvas.

I would suggest going one color at a time so that it does not become muddy.  Also, I highly suggest breaking out of the Primary Colors box and opting for different hues- mine are more bright and vivid pinks, blues, oranges and yellows.

In the end, your child (or group of kiddos) will have a unique abstract piece of art that bridges art and music.
