This is one of my favorite summer art projects. It really is stunning!
First, use a paint brush to wet the entire sheet of white construction paper with water. Next, add several layers of colors using watercolor paints to create a sunset. The more imperfect it is, the better it will look when completed.
Cut out shapes (silhouettes) using black construction paper to create a relaxing summer scene. When the sunset painting has dried, glue on the silhouettes.
I add a solid black sheet of construction paper for the back to create a frame.
It really makes the project pop!
Can you see why I love these? Each child's creation is unique yet gorgeous.
Enjoy the remaining days of summer!
