Well I've been 'experimenting' with my son James. Nothing too sinister, he's has just been my guinea pig.
I was asked if I could come up with some art ideas for our local preschool. In particular some artwork that they can 'hang up', make the place look a bit more creative. Hence the butterflies. This was a task that I did with Miss Beatie and her lovely friends during the school holidays and it seemed to work o.k.
So here are the step-by-step photos and instructions that I have done for the preschool.
Step 1: Paint a piece of paper using different colours. Watercolour works best.
Step 2: Let dry.
Step 3: Then draw a circle and a square on the paper. They both need to be similar size. Try to use the whole piece of paper. (I like to use a plate to trace the circle.)
Step 4: Cut both out.
Step 5: Fold each shape in half. The square should be now a triangle.
Step 6: Open out again, then concertina fold (like a fan) each piece.
Step 7: Then fold each one in half. Now open up.
