ART PROJECTS TO DO AT HOME

While our community is #stayinghometogether, we've put together a few projects you can do at home. Every Monday, from 8:30am–10am, we host a drive-thru for parents to get take home art kits for their children. If you can't make it, or want to do the project again, you can come to this page to download the resources here.

 

Giraffe Ornament

So technically, it's a snowman ornament shape, but when the weather got warmer and we still had ornaments left, our education coordinator, Tori, came up with the idea to create different designs within that shape. 

Download the handout with the ornament outlines and follow the written instructions or the video to make our own giraffe (or the friendly cactus below).

Cactus Ornament

So technically, it's a snowman ornament shape, but when the weather got warmer and we still had ornaments left, our education coordinator, Tori, came up with the idea to create different designs within that shape. 

Download the handout with the ornament outlines and follow the written instructions or the video to make our own friendly cactus (or the giraffe above).

Comic Book Wallet

Grab some old comic books or magazines and create your own wallet with a little bit of packing tape and ingenuity.

Download the instructions or follow the video demonstration to learn how to create a wallet that shows off your personality.

Once you have the basic wallet shape down, try this more complex comic book wallet using two pages.

Coffee Doodle Art

Grab some coffee and thick sheet of paper like a mixed media or watercolor paper and get creative!

Splash coffee on the paper, wait for it to dry, then draw whatever comes to mind using the coffee stains as inspiration.

Download the instructions or follow the video demonstration to learn how to create your own coffee doodle pages.

Origami Projects

You can make just about anything with origami—the art of paper folding.

 

If you don't have origami paper, cut thin paper like wrapping paper into 6 inch-by-6 inch squares to follow the instructions.

 

You can also use other size squares—as long as the paper is a square, the origami instructions should work!

You can download the written instructions for four projects:

The butterfly

The parajita - a spanish origami bird

The jumping frog

The crane

You can watch Dixie struggle to make a butterfly in our video, or visit Jona Kashima's YouTube channel to find amazing how-to videos on almost any creation imaginable.

Here are direct links to videos showing how to create the other origami projects we have written instructions for:
