~*PoP*~

Spring is *popping* up in less than a month! Spring can be represented in many ways, most of which are colorful. That makes for some very visually appealing art, not to mention fun to make. Our first dip into spring art is with bubbles!

Bubbles– fun to say, fun to play, and even more fun to draw.

Here at the studio, we have artists of all ages. This project is great for that because you can make it as simple or complex as you want it. I’ve seen kids anywhere from 4-14 work on this piece with a smile on their faces, and some sweat on their brow!

One way that we make this piece so interesting is we use black artagain paper. This makes the colors *pop* 🙂

I prefer to have the students use dry/soft pastels. These stay vibrant and bright on the black paper and almost looks neon, makes for a super cool effect!

As always, we start this project by sketching. Half the class is spent practicing and coming up with a design. A neat thing about the bubbles is that there really is no wrong way to color them in. You can do a variety of patterns that will still keep the illusion alive. Endless possibilities is definitely exciting in the art world!

Here are a few  more examples…
