Our Favorite Art for Easter & Spring

Here are a few of our Favorite Easter/Spring art projects.  You might want to try them too!

Easter Egg Hunt!

This is a mixed media project for all ages, even preschoolers! The secret is a cardboard egg template. Trace as many as your like, then decorate the eggs at will! Try to do something different with each one. Then hide your eggs in the grass by painting the background green, green, green!

Busy Easter Bunny 
Here's a fun painting of the Easter Bunny busily getting ready for Easter! We painted these on a large piece of blue poster board using tempera paint and LOTS of imagination! Include a vase of spring flowers and lots of spilled paint! Added various collage elements, like wrapping paper, scrapbooking papers, and newspaper make this a really fun Easter art project!!! 

You can find more details and see lots more  busy Easter Bunnies on our previous weblog post. 

A Wild Rabbit! 
This is a tempera painting of a rabbit amid tasty dandelions and sweet grasses. He is wary and watchful as he fills his tummy with yumminess! 

Our bunny is painted on 12" x 18" paper, starting first with a simple guided drawing. 

You can see more examples our wild rabbit painting here and here.

Pysanky Egg Pastel Resist Painting

This is a very large Pysanky-style Easter Egg painting that is created first with oil pastels and then painted with watercolor. The more detailed the drawing, the more stunning the results!

Cheery Cherry Blossoms 
This beautiful spring-like tempera painting inspires happiness! Created in the style of Russian painter Natalia Goncharova, beautiful bright colors are painted on colored paper using simple and quick strokes of the brush! See our previous post for more details and samples of student work.
