Modern Art Canvas Wall Hanging Project for Kids

Project 2: We used acrylic paint, canvas, brushes and wooden circles to create a modern art wall hanging.

 Wooden circles come in small bags and can be purchased at crafts stores for a few dollars.

 First, cream colored circles were drawn all over the canvas. Next, light blue was used to outline the circles. Then two darker shades of blue were used to outline the circles. When two circles were close together, one was chosen to be on top while the other fell into the background.

 Then the remaining white space was filled with blue.

 A hot glue gun was used to glue the circles to the canvas at the centers of the circles.

The result was an interesting piece of modern art for our very blue bathroom.

  1. I love this idea! I have one boy who is very resistant to painting and I think it's because he feels pressured to "make" something. This looks like so much fun. Pinned!
