I have to back post this tutorial. But, I absolutely loved how this project turned out and had to share it with everyone. You too could have modern art created by yourself or your child with ZGallery looks or the look of the Guggenheim for a very low, low cost.
This artwork was created by my daughter Emma when she was just 6 1/2. This tutorial is so simple and you’ll have timeless, classic modern artwork that will be a product of your little one or yourself.
Here’s what you need:
–1, 2 or 3 Canvases 12 x 12 (Depending on the size of your wall space and the look you desire. I always pick the canvases that have the 1″ finished canvas sides. They may be more expensive then the regular canvas boards. However, when you go to hang your finished work, you won’t have to pay the additional cost of the canvas frame bars. That will easily add an additional, $15.00 or more to your overall cost of the project. If you can’t find canvases with the 1″ sides, do use the canvas boards. They also sell the canvas frame bars at Michael’s where you know you can use your 40% off coupon. Also, here’s a tip for you. If you didn’t know, you can use JoAnn coupons at Michael’s. They will only take one per visit though.
– 2 Containers of Acrylic Paint (choose 2 high contrasting colors)
– Foam Paint Brush
– Roll of Painters Tape
– Container For Your Paint
Here’s the 12 x 12 canvas.
