The Happy Accident Project is very useful for all ages. Kids learn to make the best of their mistakes and they come to realize that there actually are NO mistakes! A project that is always fun to make!
My elementary students created this lovely landscape painting very easily. First they drew the mountains, then they picked their favourite colour and mixed it with black and white to create the tones. The kids and their parents were very happy! We came up with very unique and impressive landscapes made by beginners!
My 1st grade students created this lovely and free painting. All I asked them to do was place a paper boat anywhere on the paper and use their imagination to paint the surrounding. One of my students didn't want to use a paper boat, but wanted to paint a red boat. I let her do whatever she imagined. I think her painting came out brilliant. The #artproject took us around 50 minutes.
Non objective art project. Very useful project for ALL art students. The kids follow the very same general instructions and come up with a totally different result. This way they learn to value their uniqueness as artists and most important, as personalities.
