Today we are working on Native American Sand paintings. We found some great resources on the history of sand painting.Native American Art
Navajo Sand Painting
What you will need:
- Construction Paper or Cardboard.
- Tempura Paint
- Craft Sand
What We Did
- First, we looked up pictures of traditional sand art paintings. We found a printable picture of a horse that we used as inspiration for our sand art painting.
|You can find this printable coloring sheet here.|
2. Next, we drew our outline on our construction paper.
3. While Rapunzel was drawing her outline, I mixed up the sand with tempura paint.
|I used art sand.|
|I mixed the sand with Crayola Tempura Paint.|
|This is what the paint looked like after it was mixed. The paint should not be overly thick.|
