Perspective, whether an idea or physical object, is the way we view something. It helps us to understand that idea or the subject in relation to its context or environment.

Can you create art without using the right perspective?  Yes, you can, but an art professor once told me that you need to learn the rules before you can break them; therefore, I always begin a drawing unit with perspective.

Paper Mache Easter Egg | Art Lesson for Kids | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art

 

Does your kiddos like to get messy?  Well, I got a lesson just for them because this paper mache Easter lesson will be a little messy (ok a lot messy) and gooey, but they will love it!!!

I spent all last week prepping for another art lesson to share with you and your mini artists to do this week, and it’s perfect timing for Easter.  This one has been a little tricky for me because it was my first time since elementary school that I have attempted paper mache.  It took some trial-and-error learning what to do and what not to do.  I will first give you the step by step of what I did to create my egg and then share with you some tips on how I would change things to make it easier or more child friendly.  If you are feeling up to the challenge, then you can follow the original instructions.

 Art Lessons for Kids are back! 

Last year when we went into the mandatory stay home order, I started sharing some art lessons for mamas and daddies who needed some ideas for their kiddos, but I stopped when things opened back up.

I’ve had some mamas reach out and ask if I would be doing more art lessons because they really enjoyed getting them.  I felt encouraged to learn that my lessons were useful and appreciated, but I also felt a bit guilty for not continuing them even after the stay home order was lifted and summer vacation began.  I’m grateful for those who expressed their gratefulness and I look forward to providing more art lesson ideas.
