8 Fun Art Projects to Try with Your Kids this Summer

Every year we hold our popular summer art camp and we’re amazed at what the kids come up with. With weekly themes such as Art with Live Animals and Cartooning and Anime, there’s always something for everyone.

Over the years, we’ve seen our share of mini masterpieces. The staff at Winged Canvas have tirelessly dug through the special archives to bring you 8 fun art projects you can try with your own kids this summer! 

1. 2D Underwater Sculptures

We made these underwater landscapes with the kids last year and the results were beautiful! The campers conjured up all sorts of creative ideas about what it looked like at the bottom of the ocean. 

For this project, we spread a thin layer of blue clay all across the canvas and built the scene up from there. This technique works for any other theme you may choose as well!

Once you’ve got your blue background, you can start adding some underwater friends. A good way to add depth to the piece is to make the objects in the foreground thicker. This will make them appear closer and draws more attention,

We also used various tools to help add texture to our landscapes. For example, we used some crumpled aluminum foil to give the rocks a rougher look. To make this a mixed media piece, we made some pipe cleaner seaweed and added Perler beads to coral!
