We have events for teens every week this summer! And...win great prizes for reading! Drawings every week. Put in an entry for every 100 pages, magazine or book you read or listen to!
This week teens were artistic & creative with chalk paint, CD scratch art, cross-out art, & more.
Check it all out:
The CD scratch art was very popular. Just paint the shiny side with a dark acrylic paint & let it dry. Then use a sharp instrument--they used a nail or letter opener--and scratch a design. It's reflective and colorful--and surprising!
They made some meaningful--and silly--cross-out art with a page from an old paperback. Pick a sentence you want to display & cross out everything else. Then make a frame--they used puzzle pieces.
Another interesting artwork was to take an old painting (we had colorful paper placemats & file folders), stick on vinyl letters and other stickers and then paint over it all with white paint. When it's dry, remove the stickers and the painting shows through. Interesting...
They made word art too--with www.wordle.net. Easy to make, harder to copy & print, but fun!
