We love finding simple ways to create lovely art – in the past we’ve tried everything from rainbow squeegee painting, to flower scrape painting – we’ve even used trains and paint balls to make super fun process paintings! Today’s beautiful paint dot symmetry art uses the technique of symmetrical “painting” to create beautiful layered artwork that is a breeze for kids to make and guarantees stunning results! From as-is artwork to summer-y collaged flowers – the possibilities are endless. You can even use this process to make some beautiful butterflies,…!
PAINT DOT SYMMETRY ART MATERIALS:
- Construction paper white or colored
Take a sheet of paper and fold it at the center. Open it in back up so it’s laying flat in front of you.
On one side, start adding some dots of paint (you can use a brush, a bingo dauber, or gently squeeze straight from the tube) Add them here and there, alternating colors to create a mix of paint dots.
Fold your paper in half again, and gently rub the back a bit to transfer the paint from one side to the other.
Open and voila! you just create a symmetrical print and an art pattern. Let dry completely.
Now you can hang and display your art as is, OR use it to make flowers by cutting your print paper into flower shapes in collaging them. You can also use this technique to make cards, wrapping paper and more!
If you’ve had fun getting your paint on, try experimenting with incorporating other mediums into your projects too! These DIY painted clay fish are the perfect marriage of ceramic and paint (how cute are they?)! Or try a new form of painting with this watercolor salt and glue art.
