Art Lessons & Art Projects
Every Creative Kit will receive Lesson Plans and Art Projects printed copies included for free inside the kit. Activities are easy to follow with step-by-step instructions and pictures accompanying each step, making it as easy as possible for children to follow with little or no help. Each lesson plan has been developed by a primary school teacher and is a valuable art lesson for both primary and high school aged children.
Colour Theory - Our world is made up of colours which can influence the way we feel and react to things. Colour is a key element in Visual Art and colour theory is a way of organising colours and looking at how they work together. Artists use colour to create balance, contrast and to evoke feelings. In this lesson you will learn to understand colour theory and use it to help influence your art.
Creating Collage - A collage is a picture or design that is created by adhering elements to a flat surface. The word “collage” comes from the French coller meaning “to glue”. Collage is a form of artwork that is made by assembling or organising different materials to create a new piece of art. In this lesson you will learn what collage is, understand the different methods and materials used for collage and them create and construct your own beautiful artwork.
Rock painting - is a wonderful activity for kids that develops fine motor skills, encourages outdoor play, creativity and kindness.
The idea behind the rocks is that you decorate them then hide them in locations for others to find as a little surprise to brighten their day. A perfect combination of art, community and family time. You can also keep the rocks for yourself of course or give them as gifts. Decorative rocks look gorgeous displayed on shelves in your home or tucked away in your garden. We've created lots of lessons for inspiration and to get you started.
Colour Name Wheels - A unique way to create a colour wheel using your own name, a meaningful word or the name of someone you love. A colour wheel shows you how colours relate to each other and visually demonstrates the relationship between primary, secondary and complementary colours.
Complementary Op Art - Create a piece of art that pops using complementary colours. Complementary Colours are any two colours which are directly opposite each other on the colour wheel. These opposing colours create maximum contrast. Using complementary colours next to one another makes each colour appear brighter for maximum effect. In this project we will show you how to create two examples: Optical Illusion Hearts and Op Art Skulls.
Draw 3D Hands - In this project you will learn how to draw a 3D hand that jumps right out of the page with this simple drawing technique to create an easy optical illusion. We also include an Inspiration Page displaying lots of other imaginative ideas to create you own 3D drawings using other shapes.
My Favourite Things Collage - Create a collage filled with pictures of all your favourite things in one place. Showcase all the things you love and create a storyboard that is all about you, filled with all the things you love the most. In this step-by-step project guide we will show you 3 examples of creating your own unique artwork; however the options are endless, then, if you can scan or photograph it, we can print it for you.
Rainbow Collage - Everybody loves rainbows! Rainbow collages are a great activity to learn about colour. You can choose to create your own rainbow using all the colours of the rainbow, just a few colours or create your own colour scheme. Our included Inspiration Page shows lots of ideas on the types of collage materials you can use to create your rainbow, including paint, flowers, cars, and magazine clippings.
Scribble Designs - Scribble drawings are a lot of fun to create and although they are quite simple to do, they become so much more than a scribble. You simply make a scribble outline and fill in the spaces and shapes you make with colour to create an amazing artwork. Lots of ideas are shown in the Inspiration Page that comes with your kit.
