Art Activity

Check out this ingenious art project from our Atelier Art program. 
Egyptian Art is known for its black outlines.   To produce that black outline in this project, first pencil in your design on a large piece of black construction paper.   Next outline that design with white school glue.

  1. What a great idea!! Thank you for sharing it at Crafty Moms Share this week!

  2. I've seen some ideas for using glue on Pinterest, but never with this type of design, your project turned out great! I am returning the favor of the follow, thanks for the visit to my blog, it's nice to meet you. :) Angela

  3. Very cute idea! I am pinning it for when we study Egypt =-) Thanks for linking up to TGIF Linky Party! I look forward to seeing you again next week,

  4. Very clever! I love how well it turned out! :-) While in Williamsburg last week, my kids made colonial silhouettes which was a lot of fun. We are doing some special crafts this week as part of our Advent, as well, including Jesse tree ornaments and encouragement and hope cards for those in our family who live alone.

    Hope you are having a good week!
    Many blessings,

  5. This is so great! I've been wondering what I could do with the chalk we've had laying around. Now I need to get some construction paper. My kids are going to love this!
