A Painted Winter Scene

Winter is near its end and I thought it was time my students record a bit of their winter experience through art. I wanted to introduce my grade 1s to painting on different surfaces and thought of fabric. I chose Cordura 1000D because it is a thick fabric that would be similar to canvas – and I had some offcuts that had been given to me. I decided to use one colour – white – to depict winter; and to use liquid tempura as the medium. I tried painting a scene and came up with this:

In order to paint this scene the children would have to learn how to brush the paint on the fabric. They would also have to use three different paint brush sizes. They had a lot of fun painting their night scene and left the craft table proud of the work they had done.

Have you done any painting on fabric?

      1. Of course dear Colline, I have so many things to do and I am not being in discipline so it takes time everything 🙂 Right now I try to finish some knitting projects for a gift to my friend and her daughter. Thanks again, love, nia


    1. Oh yes they did. I find they love to do anything crafty – especially if you have the patience to show them how to do it. They love it when I do crafts at the “round table” 🙂
