I showed my kids some pictures of stained glass and then we made these pictures. First, I mixed the regular school glue with a little black acrylic paint. I usually use the candy squeezer containers that you can find at Michael’s since the lid doesn’t get as mucked up as the regular tops on the Elmer school glues. Then I gave it to the guys to use to draw on watercolor paper. Sean understood that the scale of the picture should be big while Zack’s picture was more Jackson Pollack-esque. For the second picture, Sean drew a sun and some flowers with a pencil then outlined it with the black glue. It takes a few hours to dry. Then I gave them droppers, brushes, and cotton swabs to color the pictures. For the first picture, the kids used watercolors and for the second pictures, they used poster paint. We have been talking about coloring the subject and negative space especially in stain glass pictures. It took him a long time to color all the negative space. He is such a perfectionist that he painted for a while, took a break then finished the picture. *Thanks to my friend, Ivania, who gave me this activity idea.
