Easy Birch Trees - Kid's Art Class

 This was one of those projects that left the kids so proud of themselves afterwards.  Several of them said it was easier than they thought it would be.  We used different sizes of painters & masking tapes to make the tree trunks (the largest widths were put on first so they would come off last to get the right perspective).  Then the kids painted the backgrounds with two different acrylic paints, blending them in the middle where they met.  We used metallic paints to make the circles with different sized items (small sponges, jar lids, etc.).  Then we carefully tore off the "background" tree tape (the smallest widths that were crossing over the larger trees).  Using credit cards and black paint, they scraped along the tree trunks on either side to make their birch bark.  It is amazingly easy and the kids had a blast.  As each tree was finished we would tear off another piece of tape until all the tree trunks were painted.  Doing the trees in stages made sure that the perspective stayed true and kept it from being too confusing for the kids.  Kept me running in circles supervising though!

Here is my video tutorial for this project.

Our project combined a couple of different ideas from awesome pins I found on Pinterest  links are below. Gotta love Pinterest!

  3. This was a fabulous painting project for my Granddaughter's birthday party. Very clear steps. Although the project was guided, each of the participants felt that their own painting was unique and were super proud of their end result. And I was actually able to facilitate it effectively!!!! (I made a painting myself first and discovered just how effective your steps were.) Thanks for this terrific activity!!! signed: a Grateful Grandma

According to what you mentioned, everything is precisely how it should be. One could look up Manali Tour Packages
    and make reservations in advance to minimize problems. This blog has taught me a lot of new stuff. I really want to go back to Manali and am pretty keen to do so. I want to make my upcoming trip even more memorable this time.
