Our Favorite Winter-themed Art Ideas

We've created so many amazing, snowy frosty wintery artworks at the Blackfoot Art Center! It wasn't easy to pick just the right ones for our artists-in-residence. We've selected six of our favorites for you to create at home, each with complete instructions. Have fun!

Winter Alpine Trees

These lovely alpine trees are created with torn painted paper, collage, and tempera paint on a black substrate. Click here for our previous project post. You can also download a printable step-by-step pdf for this project. 

Hint: Keep your project printouts in an art project idea binder for future reference.

Downtown Snow Storm!

You'll will have a great time creating this awesome wintertime art project: a downtown snowstorm!

This is a mixed media painted collage. You'll paint the tall buildings, cut them out, glue them down, then finish with more details and lots of SNOW! Take a look at our earlier post to see how it's done. You can also print out our step-by-step pdf instructions for this fun project.

Winter Cardinals

These sweet little cardinals snuggle up on a snowy branch in this frosty winter landscape. You can learn more about this watercolor/tempera painting right here. You can also download a printable step-by-step pdf for this fun project. 

Steamy Hot Cocoa Mugs

Paint a steamy hot mug of cocoa while creating colorful designs and patterns for--well--everything! You can also add fun foam marshmallows and tracing paper steam... Click here to see our earlier weblog post. 

You can download a printable step-by-step pdf too.

Animals in Snugly Sweaters

These forest animals are snugly warm in their colorful sweaters! The entire project is created using Sharpies and markers (after the basic animal shape is lightly penciled in).  

Learn how here, or download our printable step-by-step pdf

Winter Tree Silhouettes

These winter tree silhouettes are unusual because we used warm instead of cool colors to create them. They are painted on watercolor paper using both liquid and pan watercolors. You can use both or either type for your painting.
