Students will create wild works of art using paint, paper and a salad spinner.
What You Need:
What You Do:
- salad spinner (or a spin art machine -- see below)
- bottles of paint (washable tempera)
- small paper plates 6"
- I set my salad spinner on a table in front of the class and then I call
students, one at a time, to come to the spinner. The other
students draw whatever they like on a piece of paper while they are waiting their turn.
- Students pick 3 colors and I pour them onto the paper plate that
they have placed into the spinner. Then they get to spin!
- They have such fun! No one knows what the outcome will be until
I lift the top off of the spinner and then the ooohs and ahhhs
- These turn out beautifully! It is so much fun listening
to the students talking about what they see in their pictures.
I have never seen a bad one!
- Try this and your students will love it!
