Kids Painting: Acrylic Winter Snowflake Lesson

By Spramani Elaun

Happy Winter Solstice!

In this blog I want to share my fun painting lesson I’ve been teaching this winter, with multiple schools kindergarden – six grade.

I’ve had great success showing kids my basic acrylic lessons by creating winter snowflakes!

The idea for sharing this lesson is to introduce my basic set-up for acrylic painting, and just how easy it can be to work with acrylic paint.

I invite you to get free access to my video demo below.

I’ve made a follow-up video to this lesson.

My first video attempt has been such a hug learning curve for me!

I did make a few mistakes, but I got right back in the studio with the follow-up video to clarify some color terms.

When you sign-up for this demo, you’ll also get the following video sent to your email in a few days.

Other exciting news, I’m in the studio creating many art curriculum video lessons for purchase and free, which will be available for parents and teachers this winter.

Painting Instruction Steps:

  1. First paint the background, covering the entire canvas to look stormy or a cloudy day. Allow time for paint to dry before painting snowflake shape.
  2. Sketch with a small paintbrush the skeleton snowflake form using a dark paint color. This is almost like making an outline shape of the basic snowflake shape you desire.

snowflake-with-hexagon-shape-outline_318-404293. Make outline marks symmetrical, kids can decide how many crystal needles they want. This is a great time to discuss what symmetrical balance means.

4. Add in needle crystal marks branching off the main skeleton.

5. Paint in details over your needle marks with light paint colors to make snowflake appear icy. Blend grey and blue tints to make these icy brushstrokes.

6. Show kids how to make sweeping brushstrokes with mixtures different colors from palette.

Order kids can learn the terms Tints & Shades, which is reviewed ore in depth in video 2.

 

I would love to hear feed back from you parents and teachers!
