"APFLH" Children's Art Studio- Flavors of Fall (Mosaics)

I am quickly learning that the Children's Art Studio is not just for kids...
 
In fact, we had so much fun last week with our "Flavors of Fall" Gratitude Collages that I could hardly wait to get back in the studio again!  This time the children and I sat down and created our masterpieces with supplies that we already had...

Bean Mosaic Art
Pencil
Glue
Q-tips
Cut up pieces of a cardboard box
Beans, seeds, or other choice items
 
 
First we sorted black beans, pinto beans, and navy beans...
Split Peas

Bird Seed

Red Beans


 
Organized the beans into separate containers...



Traced our designs and glued beans onto cardboard...



 
and ended up with these final designs...

 
 


"When you use what you have
to do what you love...
That my friends,
is true art"

(Flavors of Fall studio time will culminate with... "Water Colors and Print Painting")

  1. This was my favorite as a kid! The boys have Jiu Jitsu on Saturdays during your art time that's why we haven't been able to come and participate :-(
